One Response to Book Week Continues This Weekend And Next Week! (Schedule Included)

  1. While out for a walk at 6am this morning, I stumbled across James Bartell reading DR. BIRD’S ADVICE… If I’d seen this book in a bookstore, I wouldn’t have picked it up because I prefer ‘happy’ books, and this one contains a lot of pain. But James Bartell’s completely natural way of giving us the words on the page made James Whitman so real. I felt like I’d be adding to Whitman’s pain if I didn’t respect him by listening to what he has to say. I’m not able to listen to the entire 3 hours of the reading because of other commitments this morning. But I want to thank WRBH for guiding some of us to places outside of our comfort zone through beautifully written books and gifted readers.
