Welcome to Episode 165! We can’t wait for you to listen to our Author Spotlight with DIANE WILSON! We were honored to talk with Diane about her moving, multi-generational debut novel, THE SEED KEEPER. Diane also talks about her writing process, her next book project, and more. In our Just Read segment, Emily talks about Elle Cosimano’s FINLAY DONOVAN KNOCKS ‘EM DEAD, THE KEEPER by Kelcey Ervick (a future guest), and a weird short story by Roald Dahl called “Pig.” Chris finished THE WARMTH OF OTHER SUNS by Isabel Wilkerson, a book of stunning breadth and depth. She both read the paperback edition and listened to the audiobook that was brilliantly narrated by Robin Miles. Both of us also read The Seed Keeper and had such a wonderful time talking with listeners on the Zoom call. Thank you to everyone who joined in on the readalong. In Biblio Adventures, Emily made it to POP! Art Books Culture in Boardman, Ohio. Chris has been binging the Outlander series on Netflix and started Lovecraft Country (HBO) which is based on the novel of the same name by Matt Ruff. Emily got to see the documentary, Hello Bookstore, which was in town for one night only at the Madison Arts Cinema. And both Book Cougars enjoyed some library time at the E. C. Scranton Memorial Library also in Madison, CT. There’s lots more book talk in this episode and we hope you enjoy it!
