KCTS 9 Book Club

Monthly book selections are made by a rotating group of Washington authors who also host the virtual discussions. The twist: authors select books that aren't their own! Most months, books selected are fiction, but we may change it up once every so often. Themes correspond to current programming airing on KCTS 9.

We are taking a break in December, but we are gearing up for January! Our theme will be "Television & Movies Based on Books" and we'll be reading Havana Red by Leonardo Padura. Please note this is a crime novel and the book contains curse words. Check back soon to find out which local author will lead the discussion! The selection complements these programs on KCTS 9:

  • Four Seasons in Havana, based on the Havana Quartet books by Leonardo Padura. Havana Red is one of the books in the quartet. The series is available for on-demand streaming for Passport members at KCTS9.org.
  • All Creatures Great & Small, based on the book of the same title by James Herriot. Season 2 premieres on January 9th at 9 pm (Check out Season 1 with KCTS 9 Passport!)
  • The Rebel Princess, based on The Emperor's Conquest by Mei Yu Zhe 寐语者. The series is available for on-demand streaming for Passport members at KCTS9.org.
