Like death and taxes book censorship is always with us. Michael Cart, Infopeople’s book maven, muses about it in his latest podcast. He discusses Banned Books Week (coming in September) which this year will celebrate banned young adult books. He also talks about some of the most frequently banned YA book titles.
In this podcast, Infopeople’s resident book reviewer discusses two titles coming in July 2015: new books from the late Dr. Seuss (to be titled What Pet Should I Get?) and the great Harper Lee, author of To Kill a Mockingbird, whose new book is titled Go Set a Watchman.
In this podcast, Infopeople’s YA book maven looks at some recent YA book awards, all of which were awarded at the 2015 ALA Midwinter conference in Feb 2015. He also talks about some other new YA titles including John Corey Whaley’s Noggin and a new Sherlock Holmes pastiche, Williams Ritter’s Jackaby.
In this holiday-themed Infopeople podcast, Michael Cart reads a story that he wrote, set in December 1953 somewhere in the Midwest. Curl up with a cup of hot cocoa and prepare to take a lovely trip down Michael’s memory lane!
