Show Notes

 Season 2 begins! And we kick off with a great guest talking with me about one of the best books I've read all year: The Violin Conspiracy by Brendan Slocumb. Brendan stops by to chat with me about his book, comic books, music, and so much more. He's a man of many talents, and I can't wait for you to hear what he has to say. Please note a portion of our interview does contain spoilers for the book but it is well-marked when we begin the spoiler discussions. See the time stamps to help navigate. 

In today's episode I also review the poetry book "It Rained Warm Bread" by Gloria Moskowitz-Sweet and Hope Anita Smith. It tells the story of holocaust survivor Moishe Moskowitz in poetry. It was one of the recommended books by our recent guest Nancy Churnin. You can see my interview with her here:
