Attention, bookworms! This week’s list is for you guys!
Much like attending concerts of our favorite musicians, getting the opportunity to listen as our favorite author himself or herself reads aloud passages from his or her own work can be a very exhilarating experience. And, still very much like it, it’s not all the time that we are lucky enough to personally attend readings and witness these on our own – may it be because of distance or existing in completely different ages, among many other reasons. So in this list, we’re presenting this compilation of five of the most influential authors who have recordings of themselves reading select passages from their respective works. Here we have *Truman Capote*, *Kurt Vonnegut*, *Sylvia Plath*, Frank O’Hara, and Flannery O’Connor!
