Books about language from Babel


Babel is a new summer show coming to CBC Radio One, and it's all about words and language. Babel isn't your typical show about English. It's a conversation about our ever-evolving language in today's Canada, where old ideas collide with new realities.

Babel premieres on Monday, June 25, at 11:30 a.m. on CBC Radio One.

The Babel team asked guests who will be coming on their show over the next 10 episodes to recommend a book about language they felt is worth reading. Check out the guests and their reading suggestions below!
