In our ongoing quest to become better librarians by reading every genre (regardless of our actual interest) we tackle Religion (non-fiction).  

Listen to your hosts Anna Ferri, Meghan Whyte, and Matthew Murray discuss how/whether reading non-fiction is different than fiction, Scientology, new religious movements, travelogues, biographies, how religion interacts with different cultures, accessibility, and Meghan geeks out about charismatic Christianity.
