WUWM's Lake Effect has been catching up on their sumer reading. Here's Books and Company's Lisa Baudoin and her picks for summer reading on Lake Effect.
--Pearl Buck in China, by Hilary Spurling (now in paper)
--The Last Call, by Daniel Okrent
--The Cookbook Collector, by Allegra Goodman (now in paper)
--The Language of Flowers, by Vanessa Diffenbaugh
--Alex MacLeod, author of the prize-winning story collection, Light Lifting.
--Karen McQuestion, who recently spoke at the Butler Public Library.
Wisconsin Public Radio, of course, has also been having interviewing their fairshare of authors. On Ben Merens show this past week:
July 18, Bryan Caplan, author of Selfish Reasons to Have Kids
July 14, Al Gini, philosopher and author of God Can Quote me on That.
Revisit all of Merens's shows in the WPR audio archive.
And if all goes well, I'll be talking books with Mr. Merens this Friday at 5 pm. Summer reading? Sure, sort of. And thanks, Lisa, for the Spurling reminder. That needs to go on our Summer of China table.
