Series Description
Books in Profile,' with Virgilia Peterson, and 'Literary Comment,' with Harding Lemay, together constitute a unique contribution to the wide area of literary broadcasting. The two distinguished 25-minute programs, broadcast on alternate Thursday nights on WNYC & WNYC-FM, cooperate in presenting a comprehensive view of writers and writing. Both moderators bring to their broadcasts an impressive literary background -- Miss Peterson, a prominent author and critic, is the former moderator of 'Author Meets the Critics'; Mr. Lemay, an associate of the Book Publishers Council, is a former actor and director. The two programs usually deal with a common theme, introduced with comments and personal interviews on 'Books in Profile,' and further discussed and illustrated with readings by noted actors on 'Literary Comment.' Together, the two related series provide unduplicated and comprehensive coverage of the world of books."--1956 Peabody Awards entry form.
