    What’s the name of the first book Roxanne mentioned, the one you can read in one sitting and is “old fashioned story telling” and “fabley.” I think I missed it!

      I listened to it 3 times because I missed it too. I think it must have been “His Favorites: A Novel” because like she said in the podcast it is a staff favorite and short. Although the topic doesn’t seem like it would lend itself to a fable. I’m going to give it a go.

      Oh! I looked at the newsletter link above and it has the transcript. The book is “West” by Caryn Davis.
