A search in Gale In Context databases results in a variety of source types. In honor of the day, we want to highlight audio results. Those include National Public Radio’s All Things Considered, Morning Edition, Weekend Edition, and Talk of the Nation. Transcripts are included with the audio programs.

Find these resources alphabetically on GoWYLD.net, either by In Context or by specific In Context database such as Biography, Global Issues, High School, etc.

Hear about it in the news?

Did you hear about a book on the radio or during a television program? Another GoWYLD resource tags books people are talking about in the media, including public radio.

On the main page of Novelist Plus, scroll down to find Explore Books in the Media. Or go to Quick Links (top left) and select Explore Pages and look for Media Mentions: What’s Included or Explore Books in the Media. From here you can browse by show or media outlet.

In a results record for a book, Media Mentions are listed with the appeal terms. For example, the Louise Penny book State of Terror lists Media Mentions for CBS: Mornings (Jun 2022); CBC Radio (Canada): The Next Chapter (Dec 2021); NPR: Fresh Air (Oct 2021); NPR: Weekend Edition (Oct 2021); and CBC Radio (Canada): Day 6 (Oct 2021)

A search strategy handout, Finding Recent Media Mentions, is available.
