As JK Rowling said, ‘I do believe something very magical can happen when you read a good book.’ From a very young age, books have the power to change us, shape us, transform us… ILFDublin and Arena, RTÉ Radio 1’s daily arts and popular culture show, bring you Books For Life with wonderful ILFDublin authors Naomi Wolf, Juan Gabriel Vásquez and Caroline Bergvall, hosted by Arena presenter Seán Rocks. Discover just which books and authors have consoled, challenged and inspired our panel! ‘When I look back, I am so impressed again with the life-giving power of literature. If I were a young person today, trying to gain a sense of myself in the world, I would do that again by reading, just as I did when I was young.’ Maya Angelou

Presented in association with Arena, RTÉ Radio 1
