Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

Kwarta Ktieb is a new literature podcast by the National Book Council featuring readings from some of Malta’s best-loved books

Listeners will be able to access 15-minute reads from locally-published short stories, excerpts from novels and poetry, read by an array of authors and personalities hailing from the arts sector.

The first series features a diverse anthology of literary works spanning nearly a century of Maltese literature, revisiting classic works such as the ever-so relevant socio-political satire Ulied in-Nanna Venut fl-Amerka by Juann Mamo, poetry by Doreen Micallef, and some of the last decade’s best-sellers including Ġużè Stagno’s What Happens in Brussels Stays in Brussels and Immanuel Mifsud’s prize-winning Fl-Isem tal-Missier (u tal-Iben)

Guest readers featured on Kwarta Ktieb include Antonella Axisa, Loranne Vella, Kenneth Scicluna and Mikhail Basmadjian.
