A new audiobook podcast (with commentary and notes) of Jane Eyre is going on: Storytime for Grownups:
Storytime for Grown-Ups is a podcast that will help you learn to love classic literature. Whether we choose to admit it or not, many of us find the great books of the past inaccessible. The language is dense, the vocabulary is unfamiliar, and the characters seem old-fashioned. Too often, these books are thrown aside as boring or too difficult even if their plots intrigued us to begin with. But these books are classics for a reason—we just need a way in.
Each season of Storytime for Grown-Ups, host Faith Moore will read a book aloud: one chapter per episode. As she reads, she’ll pause from time to time to give brief explanations that will make it easier to follow along. Li
ke an audio book with built-in notes. And the more you listen, the easier the language will seem.
So brew a pot of tea, find a cozy chair, and settle in. It’s storytime.
Storytime for Grownups premieres Monday January 8th 2024, with new episodes dropping every Monday and Friday. The book for season 1 is Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë.

The Eyre Guide interviews Faith Moore.
