HUSH Podcast #104 – A Book with a Sports Theme

Show Notes

In this episode, we talk about the appeal of reading books with a sports theme. What is the appeal of books about athletes? Are sports stories only for lifelong sports fans? Nate Hohl, sports librarian, shares his recommendations to help you find the perfect pick for the “A Book with a Sports Theme” square on your Reading Bingo card. HUSH co-hosts Thad Hartman, Miranda Ericsson and Lissa Staley share their recommendations and plans for completing the Reading Bingo cover-all challenge.
