‘Reading With Robin’ Returns to Radio Friday

by | Jan 15, 2015

robin kallRobin Kall is crazy about books, and she’s crazy about people. Getting people together to talk about books is, well, her idea of heaven. That’s what she did for 10 years with her radio show, Reading with Robin. Now, after a two-year hiatus, the show is back – on 790AM WPRV, starting Friday, Jan. 16, from 4 to 5 p.m.

“I was one of those kids who was just a huge reader,” said Kall, who lives in East Greenwich. “I was the kid who was best friends with the librarian at the school. She would save Judy Blume books for me and I would help shelve and read to the younger kids.”

As an adult, Kall’s love affair with books, authors and readers continued.

“I’m a book matchmaker, I’m a book yenta, that’s what I am,” she said. For her first show, she’ll be taking calls from listeners and some favorite authors.

On her former radio show, guest authors included Rhode Island’s own Ann Hood as well as Jodi Picoult, Tom Perotta, Alice Hoffman, Chris Bohjalian, Adriana Trigiani, Jonathan Tropper, among others.

The radio show combines “my love of books and my love of socializing and bringing people together…. Even having a discussion about a book, you find out so much.”

In addition to the radio show, Kall is writing a bi-monthly column called “Well Read” for GoLocalProv, and she will be hosting special events throughout the year.
