A Readers’ Advisory Podcast about becoming better library staff by reading every genre, whether we like them or not! Every month we read books from a new, randomly picked genre; then on the podcast we discuss our reading choices, experiences, opinions, appeal factors, and other related topics as friends and library workers.

Feb 20, 2018

This month our genre is Creative Writing/Books About Writing! With real, live, award-winning authors! (Well, one anyway.) We discuss our own experiences with these sort of books, why people might read them, and whether hairstyles might affect someone’s ability to stop time. Plus: Meghan reveals her knowledge about accordions!

You can download the podcast directly, find it on Libsyn, or get it through iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play, Spotifyor your favourite podcast delivery system.
