Annotations logoAnnotations is a new podcast from the University of Georgia Press. Featuring author interviews, audio of events, student podcasts, and more, Annotations serves as a jumping-off point for readers to immerse themselves in our books, connect to the people and the work we do at the Press, and bridge the gap between the academy and the rest of the reading world.

Party Out of Bounds: The B-52’s, R.E.M., and the Kids Who Rocked Athens, Georgia by Rodger Lyle Brown—recently reissued by UGA Press—is the first book selected for Georgia Reads. David Barbe, local producer and director of UGA’s music business certificate program at Terry College, served as moderator of the event. Panelists included Brown, Vanessa Briscoe Hay of Pylon, and Dana Downs from the Tone Tones and Go Van Gogh.
