On The Same Page is a new podcast from the Jefferson-Madison Regional Library to keep you in the loop and on the same page about what’s happening at your library.
In this episode we learn about Winter Reading, library card renewals, and Northside Library children’s educational app program. But first Abby and I did some book talking.
Books we talked about –
- The Nature Fix by Florence Williams ( and we are excited because she will be appearing at the Virginia Festival of the Book)
- Code Girls by Liza Mundy (Margot Lee Shetterly, the author of Hidden Figures — which we mention, will also be appearing at the Virginia Festival of the Book)
- Quackery by Lydia Kang and Nate Pedersen (update: the cannibalism chapter was a little tough to get through)
- Gold Fame Citrus by Claire Vaye Watkins (Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel and Sunlight Pilgrims by Jenni Fagan)
- Verax by Pratap Chatterjee
- Don’t Call Us Dead: poems by Danez Smith
