Listening to the 18-minute musical monologue has been a Thanksgiving tradition among folk music fans for decades.
“What would you recommend that I read this summer?”
That’s a question I got last year from one of my gym buddies. She knew that I often read books as part of my job, and she thought she might have missed some good ones during the busy school year.
As I started coming up with a list for her, I realized that many of the authors we’d talked to on Here & Now would be a great starting point.
This year we’ve talked to even more authors who’ve produced a bunch of terrific books. It’s a wide range of reads: fiction, non-fiction and even a few short story collections.
So, if you get a chance, check a few of them out. And tell us your suggestions in the comments!
