Scope Notes in Glorious Mono
Are you listening to the Brain Burps About Books podcast? Author/illustrator Katie Davis brings the children’s lit goods on a weekly basis with interviews, on-location reports, industry tips, and audio reviews from Jen Hubert Swan (of Reading Rants! fame) and Betsy Bird (of A Fuse #8 Production).
Speaking of reviews, what with the aforementioned Bird tending to a new baby girl, I’ll be filling in for a bit. Little does Katie know that I have a “background” in radio, hosting a weekly show at my college radio station where my skills at repeating the station’s call letters (WTHS) and studio phone number (total calls received: eight) were unmatched.
My first audio review (for Jeanette Winter’s Jane Goodall bio The Watcher) is up in this week’s post. Click here to listen.
