058: AAPI… Wanna Read These Books

Wanting AAPI book recommendations, with a generous side helping of chaos from the rag tag team you've come to know and love? Well, you're listening to the right podcast! Join our co-hosts as Polli and Adam (formerly Kimberly) talk a lot about a whole lotta books. Grab a snack and a cuppa, folks, this one's a long episode!

Please note: This episode was recorded in early April and due to technical difficulties was unable to be published until May 12. Any mentions of Read Across Lawrence 2022 are no longer applicable. 

The Book Squad Podcast is recorded in the SOUND+VISION Studio at Lawrence Public Library. A big shout out to the incredibly talented Heidi Gluck for composing our jingle, and for Joel Bonner for editing the show.
