Episode #9: Getting Your Ya Ya Out

Good day everyone,

This Monday is no different from any other Monday. Book Case TV will air a new episode. Number 9. This episode deals with Young Adult fiction. And accordingly we called it: “Getting Your YA YA Out.”


In this episode, host Frederic Colier infiltrates the world of Young Adult fiction. He speaks with Jeff Kinney, creator of the Wimpy Kid series, about The Third Wheel, and Andrea Cremer, author of the prequel Rift: A Nightshade Novel.

Frederic then takes the many doodles he has accumulated over the years to Anna Barber, the co-founder of Scribble Press, the multimedia platform for creating, sharing and publishing stories, to find out what do to with them. Anna turns them into books.

The Expeditioners and the Treasure of the Drowned Man’s Canyon by S.S. Taylor, Splintered by A.G. Howard, Fairy Tales from the Brothers Grimm as rewritten by Philip Pullman, are chosen for Pick of the Week.

Episode #7 : Memories Can’t Wait

Happy New Year Everyone,

We would like to send you a happy new year for the yet still very virgin book of 2013, waiting to be written out. If you are not a writer, we wish you lots of wonderful happy reading. Lots of new books will be coming out this year. To support them, it looks like that our program will remain on air, potentially for a new season.


As you may have noticed, Book Case TV went on rerun mode for the 24th Dec and 31st Dec Eve. Given that the majority of you, we assume, will not be in front of your TV set on these dates, our producing team decided to preserve new episodes for better opportunities.

Tonight, we are resuming the broadcast of our new programs with Episode 7: Memories Can’t Wait. As always you can watch live on NYC Life channel 25 at 9:30 pm, same time every monday.

Host Frederic Colier reflects on the nature of memoir writing with guests that include Karl Ove Knausgård, the Norwegian writer who opens up about his six-volume memoir My Struggle, and local writer Kevin Terrence Hodge who discusses his experiences in From Dope to Hope.

Frederic Colier also meets with someone familiar with Mars: Andrew Kessler, author of Martian Summer: Robot Arms, Cowboy Spaceman and My 90 Days with the Phoenix Mars Mission. They discuss Andrew’s new book project, a website called Togather.com, that brings authors and audiences together online.

Books featured in this episode’s Pick of the Week include Winter Journal by Paul Auster, Joseph Anton by Salman Rushdie and Viper Pilot: A Memoir of Air Combat by Dan Hampton.
