    Three Booksellers Walk Into a Podcast...- Julia Callahan, Jeff Waxman, Chris Conti

    Three Booksellers Walk Into a Podcast...- Julia Callahan, Jeff Waxman, Chris Conti

    This week we have a treat for you! We are joined by not one but THREE guests – Julia Callahan, Jeff Waxman, and Chris Conti - indie bookstore reps for Independent Publishers Group (a book distributor), for an insightful and irreverent conversation (you can even hear our hosts blushing at times!). We talk about the role independent bookstores play in their communities, how indie booksellers are thriving despite economic challenges, and the bookstores they each like to visit when looking for a new read. We wrap up the conversation with a lightning round, sharing the unique and sometimes wacky books each has in their book collection.

    Reverence for the Natural World – Bob Budd

    Fifth-generation Wyoming native and advocate of natural resource issues throughout the West for more than forty years, Bob Budd joins us to chat about his outlook and experiences in the American West. Bob shares what inspired his reverence and awareness for conservation and stewardship of the natural world, the deeply personal relationship that literature and writing have to the natural world, and the stewardship responsibility of professional guides, hunters, fishers, and society at large. Through his experiences, Bob has seen the various needs of many groups across the American West; he shares with us some of those needs and the importance of seemingly different groups coming together at the table to find solutions. The conversation closes with a hopeful outlook on the future of land management.

    "The Library Can Always Be Yours” - Pam Sandlian Smith

    "The Library Can Always Be Yours” - Pam Sandlian Smith

    Pam Sandlian Smith, former Executive Director of Anythink Libraries in Adams County, Colorado, joins us to discuss the important role of libraries and librarians in our communities and their essential place in our democracy. Pam sees libraries as safe, nourishing, and active spaces where people can come together to exchange ideas and information on broad topics and make connections. Experiences early in her life shaped this belief and influenced her vision for Anythink Libraries. During her time as Executive Director of Anythink, Pam shepherded in changes that made the library system a more welcoming and inclusive place. Pam also shares with us the children’s books she frequently recommended, her views on book bans, and the tenacity and resilience of librarians that gives her hope for the future of libraries.
