You Should Read: Books by Indigenous authors
Oct 13, 2020 Season 1 Episode 21
Kelly Hager, Julia Hall, Rachael Hall

Hello and we are finally back! This week, we discuss Indigenous authors and the books you absolutely cannot miss. Sidebar topics include an update on our reading TBR challenge (suffice to say we are slightly behind), Christmas cookies (enjoy how smoothly Kelly was able to demand some) and how wonderful it is to be back together, taping the podcast. We also briefly discuss our upcoming Halloween episode, which one of us is VERY EXCITED FOR (Kelly. It's Kelly).

(And don't forget our first book club is approaching! We're discussing The Book of Two Ways by Jodi Picoult on the episode that drops December 8! Make sure to read it and share your thoughts with us via email or on IG and Twitter.
