Reading new books, popular literature, and favorite genres
Every three weeks, join librarian hosts Thad Hartman, Lissa Staley, and Miranda Ericsson as they host a “You Made Me Read It” book discussion with special guests from the library and community. In each interview, the guest suggests a book title that they enjoyed and thinks that other people should read. The hosts read the book, share their reactions, and everyone discusses. Listeners are encouraged to read along and discover what other people are reading and recommending. Check out the show notes for links and additional content.
