Memories of Ursula LeGuin and the 1st Annual KAXE/KBXE Book Awards!


Tammy Bobrowsky produces What We're Reading on Northern Community Radio - an avid reader and librarian, she culls our community to inspire us all to read more.  Reader Lily Winter gives us her thoughts on the loss of Ursula LeGuin this week. 

Also today, Tammy and Heidi talked about the 1st Annual KAXE/KBXE book awards where you get the chance to tell us about your favorite settings/characters and book choice of the year.  What's cool about it is the book didn't HAVE to be published in this year.  At the end of the month we'll tell you our findings!  Cast your votes here!
