Backseat Book Club Returns With 'Black Beauty'

This fall, as our younger listeners settle into their classrooms, it's time to reunite the Backseat Book Club. Each month, we pick a book to read along with our school-age listeners. Next up: a children's classic, Black Beauty by Anna Sewell.

We'll talk about the book with novelist Jane Smiley, who, in addition to winning a Pulitzer Prize for grown-up literature, has written kids' books starring horses.
