Period 3

Celebrated Authors Reading from Their Works

In 1953, Goddard Lieberson, the Executive Vice President in charge of artists and repertoire at Columbia Records, initiated a series of spoken word recordings documenting the voices and writing of a dozen American and British authors. We will hear Edna Ferber, Katherine Ann Porter, John Steinbeck, Aldous Huxley, Christopher Isherwood, Truman Capote, William Saroyan, the Sitwells, John Collier, and Somerset Maugham – each reading for the microphone and captured for posterity.
