He’s one of the country’s most beloved storytellers. Now, join Thomas Keneally for a tour of the stories that have shaped his life. From his first reading memory to his newest discoveries, spend an hour touring the bookshelves of his mind. Does Tom dog-ear his pages, or write in the margins? Is there a book he cannot bear to revisit? There’s nothing quite as revealing as our literary love affairs.
