Three out of five people dream of writing a book. Maybe you're one of them. But what does it take to go from dream to launch? Screenwriter John August (Go, Big Fish, Charlie and The Chocolate Factory) sought to find out as he tackled something he’d only ever dreamed of: writing a novel. From Wondery, A Network Of Storytellers, this is a show about putting something out into the world. How will it turn out? You’ll know when we do.
In this episode, we’re going to be judging a book by its cover, and we talked to Vivienne To, artist hired to come up with the design for Arlo Finch.
We’ll also be nerding out over fonts and grammar. Plus, we’ll sit down with one of the most important readers of Arlo Finch -- the guy who has to read it aloud.
Eventually Arlo Finch is here, in our hands, but how? We know where the words come from but the actual book? That’s another mystery worth solving - how do books get made?
