The Big Book Club Podcast from Arlington Public Library

Aug 1, 2022

For this episode we read both Maria Headley’s translation of the Old English epic poem "Beowulf" and “The Mere Wife,” Headley's 2015 retelling of Beowulf, which is set in present-day New York. 

Reminder: this is a spoiler-filled podcast. So if you’re not into that kind of thing, read the texts first and come back later.
