Books and reading are the foundation of any library but your local librarian is doing so much more: computer help, test prep and yes, even knitting. This week, Gwen and Frank talk to Erin Horanzy, an Adult Programming Librarian at NYPL's Francis Martin Library in the Bronx. Enjoy!
We want to hear from you! Please share your thoughts with us in this short survey: www.nypl.org/podcastsurvey
IS Margaret Atwood a bad feminist? Yeeeeeesh, we don't know.

Also, help us out by taking our survey at nypl.org/podcastsurvey!
This week, Gwen and Frank take on books ranging from the collapse of modern civilization to a murder "how-done-it" told exclusively from the point of view of a perspicacious fetus.
