Rebecca talks Reader's Advisory, blogging, and Women's Fiction on the Circulating Ideas podcast

While this is on the long side, you might be interested to hear me talk about RA, blogging, working for Booklist, and how I came to write my books on Women's Fiction - along with why I am such a champion for the genre. Feel free to skip to about 20:30, which is where I start talking about WF.
(I'll admit it. I'm vain, so I greatly enjoyed listening to myself talk for 40 minutes, hahaha.)

In Defense of Banned Books: There's No Such Thing as a Bad Book

This summer, I had the chance to participate in the ALA Banned Books Week Virtual Read-Out.
