Vermont Edition: Summer Book Show

VPR’s Vermont Edition will be hosting their annual book show later today, and with it, my plea to readers to call / write in to let them know that Science Fiction / Fantasy do have a place in literary canon / listener’s bookshelves.

For some people, summer is full of hectic, busy days spent running from one event to the next. Others like to enjoy summer at half speed: on a picnic blanket with a glass of lemonade and a good book. If summer for you is synonymous with ‘summer reading,’ then you’ll want to listen to our summer book show.

We’ll talk to Josie Leavitt, co-owner of Flying Pig Bookstore in Shelburne, and Stan Hynds, book buyer for Northshire Bookstore in Manchester, about what makes a good summer read. And we’ll get some of their suggestions for what books we should throw in our picnic baskets.

Drop them a line here and listen in at noon / 7pm!
