It’s Pledge Week this week for Chicago-land WBEZ listeners, and I know some folks may cut back on listening a bit. If you are one of those who go on a public radio diet, you may have missed the segment last Monday with Nancy Pearl alerting listeners to great, under-the-radar choices for summer reading. As usual, Nancy Pearl makes all six selections sound wonderful and the only frustration is where to start. All genres are represented: fiction, nonfiction, mystery, fantasy, travel, and short stories. Listen here to the interview. I’ve listed the titles below with links to the EPL catalog.
