Out of 16, just five remain.

The Aspen Words Literary Prize, now in its second year, has trimmed its longlist of 16 nominees to just five finalists. The books on the shortlist, unveiled Wednesday, all manage to "illuminate a vital contemporary issue and demonstrate the transformative power of literature on thought and culture," according to Aspen judges.

On this month's episode, hosts Erin and April talk about BlacKkKlansman, a book by Ron Stallworth that was recently made into a movie by the same name. Get Lit is KDNK's show about books and authors and can be heard on the second Monday of each month. It's hosted by KDNK Development Director Erin Galbreath and DJ April Spaulding. Hear archived episodes here.

KDNK is starting a new show about books and authors. Get Lit can be heard on the second Monday of each month. It's hosted by KDNK Development Director Erin Galbreath and DJ April Spaulding. On the first installment, Erin and April make cocktails and talk about The Girl With All the Gifts, by M.R. Carey. It's a science-fiction novel published in June 2014 and written alongside the screenplay for the 2016 film of the same name. The book tells the story of a dystopian future where most of humanity has been wiped out by a fungal infection.
