Welcome to Living A Life Through Books. This podcast is about a life-changing journey. The journey of starting, sustaining, and learning from the habit of reading.


S2E50 - Book Club: American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins. Part 1/2.

SPOILER ALERT.  This is our book club episode were we discuss the controversial book American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins.  We had 4 people (including myself) in attendance.  Erin, Lindsay, Monique from Canada and of course, myself.  Monique was a guest in a previous episode and has a fabulous bookstagram account.  Check her out at monique_reads.  Erin has been on several episodes and she was recently on my episode discussing The Giver Quartet and I've spoken about Lindsay in previous episodes as my groupie.  And I say that fondly!  We had quite a sprightly discussion and this book is great to talk about our current immigrant crisis.

We discuss the #ownvoices issues and we mention names of #ownvoices books.  I hope you enjoy this episode.

You can reach me at  Send me an email or a voice memo.  I may feature you in a future episode.
