Two apologies from Ann and a reminder to call (or write) in
with your Banned Book stories. Then, it's a preview of the
wonderful non-fiction books coming this fall, including several
cookbooks. Finally, it's your last chance to take our listener
First, Ann apologizes to word lovers everywhere about the title of this episode. Yeah, it was my idea. I thought it was catchy. Also apologies for the glitch that shortened last week's episode. The new, full version is here on the site and on iTunes now. One of the things that got cut off last week was our plea for your Banned Book stories. Banned Books Week is coming up and we'd love to hear your thoughts and experiences. Call our voicemail line, send us an email, leave a message here or on Facebook or Goodreads. Check out the American Library Associations website for a list of banned and challenged books.
In part two of our Fall Preview (following up on Fiction last week), we take a look at some of the best non-fiction coming out in the next few months. There were so many to choose from and we tried to keep the lists manageable. Please let us know which non-fiction releases you're most excited about, especially if it's something we missed!
This is your last call to take the Books on the Nightstand Reader/Listener Survey. A million thanks to all of you who have already responded. We'll close the survey on 9/30, so don't delay!
