Winter is my favorite season. Here's a photo I took a few years ago-Happy New Year!

For my final program of 2019 I selected some more of my favorite interviews from the past year and I included my favorite interview of 2019! I never dreamed I would get an interview with this author and it was even more marvelous than I expected!

Now you need to listen to this podcast to figure out which interview was my favorite. Here's one more detail; after I did the interview I received a hand-written thank you note from the author. That hardly ever happens. During 2019 I received two hand-written thank you notes. The other one came from my favorite living poet. She has a collection of short stories coming out in May and I cannot wait to interview her again. I have already read this collection and it is simply fabulous.

The Book Nook on WYSO is presented by the Greene County Public Library with additional support from Washington-Centerville Public Library,  Clark County Public LibraryDayton Metro Library, and Wright Memorial Public Library.
