Nancy and Peggy talk about a few of their staff favorites on this month’s episode. Nancy discovers a novel in letters about food and friendship that takes place in the 1960s and a gender bending historical novel based on the real life of Dr James Miranda Barry born as Margaret Anne Bulkley in 1979 Cork, Ireland.
Peggy has a great way of re-discovering older titles on the library shelves and sharing them with a new audience of readers. She starts of with Patrick Taylor’s Irish Country Doctor series and a well known children’s series from the 1980s.
We wrap it up with a couple of non-fiction books, one an investigative journalism report on Green Bank, West Virginia and the internet and cell phone free area surrounding the Green Bank Observatory; and a book about the Japanese practice of Forest Bathing. Can you guess who chose which title?
