Argo Sound Archive

Since November 2011, the Argo Bookshop has held monthly Featured Readings to showcase and celebrate some of the best in literature. Along the way, we started to accumulate recordings beyond our own reading series. Here you’ll find our aural time capsule, recordings from readings, interviews, criticism and special events that aim to encourage greater appreciation of the literary arts. You can find our archive anchored in MixCloud, and (soon) on iTunes for free.

Better heard with headphones!
