Will Today's Literature Be Relevant in 2080?

December 20, 2012

Harvard Extension School’s Master of Liberal Arts (ALM) Associate Dean Sue Weaver Schopf joined WGBH-FM’s, Boston public radio on December 12, 2012. Schopf talked about which of today’s books might endure, and which of today’s writers will likely still be read in 2080. The topic was prompted by a recent Smithsonian Magazine blog post about a 1936 poll where readers were asked to predict which current writers would most likely still be read in the year 2000.

Listen to see who Dean Schopf, and fellow guest Thomas Connolly, a Suffolk University English professor, included on their lists.
