U.S. cable net RLTV is launching a literary series tonight (May 17), with the debut of Bookmark, hosted by author and former CNN anchor Daryn Kagan.

The series will feature interviews with best-selling authors and examine human interest stories regarding how books have impacted people’s lives. The network says literature of all stripes will be represented, running from fiction to lifestyle, from biography to cooking.

Among the authors to be featured this season are Mary Higgins Clark (Daddy’s Gone A-Hunting), Delia Ephron (The Lion Is In), James McBride (Song Yet Sung) and Lisa Scottoline (Don’t Go).

Kagan will also be joined on the series by film and theatre critic Jeffrey Lyons, for a segment that will compare classic books to the films adapted from them.

“The love and appreciation of books can make such a difference in someone’s life, and I am delighted to join with RLTV to bring to its viewers this unique and lively show that captures the magic and power of books,” said Kagan in a statement.
