On The Same Page is a 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 hear from author Dr. Bert Ashe and chat about what we’ve read recently.
Book chat we talked about:
- The Grave’s a Fine and Private Place by Alan Bradley (latest Flavia de Luce book)
- Hello, Universe by Erin Entrada Kelly (Newbery Award winner, which beat Honor Book Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds)
- The Woman in the Window by AJ Finn (similar to The Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins and The Good House by Ann Leary)
- The Hunger by Alma Katsu (NOT Hunger by Roxane Gay, which is also good)
University of Richmond professor Bert Ashe spoke at Northside Library on July 31 about his experience growing and wearing dreadlocks, and the book he wrote chronicling that experience, Twisted.
During his talk, Ashe or audience members also mentioned Albert Murray’s works, especially South To a Very Old Place.
The podcast will be on a brief hiatus until September 1 when we will launch Season Two! See you then.
