On the September 23 broadcast of Bound By Books, Em and Antonia
celebrated Banned Books Week by discussing the most recently released list of top ten most frequently challenged books. To see the list for 2012 and find more information about Banned Books Week visit the ALA site by clicking here.
On the September 30 broadcast of Bound By Books, Antonia and Em talked about Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins, Book 2 in the Hunger Games Trilogy, which has a movie adaptation coming to the big screen this fall (we are very excited)! Em also discussed two recent reads Who Could That Be At This Hour?, the first book in the All the Wrong Questions series by Lemony Snicket and Hildafolk by Luke Pearson. September 30 was also our first show of the WGXC Fall Pledge Drive and so in addition to talking about books we also talked about how much we appreciate WGXC and encouraged listeners to call in and show their support. If you wish to join the fun and make a tax deductible donation in support of WGXC Hands-on Radio, feel free to call in at 518-828-0290 or donate online at wgxc.org/donate. We’ll be donating a teen book to an area library for each donation received during our show!
