You remember the golden years of reading. Back when a book could sweep you and your JanSport backpack off on an adventure losing all sense of time (and homework that is due!). Siblings-in-law, Sam and Sarah Scott, believe books don't have to lose this feeling and we're meant to share it with the children in our lives.
Our Friend S.D. Smith Serves Up Some Sandwiches
Today we are joined by S.D. Smith, author of the Green Ember series, who tells us about things like writing being a job you do with an apron on, telling stories to your kids and we find a way to talk about Narnia.
You can find Sam on the web at sdsmith.com. There you can find info about his newest book: Jack Zulu and the Waylander's Key.
Wonder by R.J. Palacio
We are back from our little fall break and we've got a doozy. We read Wonder by R.J. Palacio based on a recommendation from our friend (who you might just be hearing from later on in the show!). Wonder is a heart-warming book in the truest sense and we hope you enjoy it and this episode as much as we did.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
It all ends here. "One will die at the hands of the other, for neither shall live while the other survives." Join us as we conclude our Summer of Potter (in October, it's fine, it's fine).
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling
Just when we think things can't get worse, they do. And I'm afraid for poor Harry, this is far from the end of his troubles but we're here every step of the way as we continue our journey through the Harry Potter series in our SUMMER OF POTTER.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling
Ah, being 15 again: being angry all the time, feeling misunderstood and of course girls bursting into tears when you kiss and the evil wizard invading your dreams. Wait what? Yep, things are getting wild for Harry Potter and we're here to discuss as we dive into the fifth book in the Harry Potter series!
Our Friend Raychel is a Harry Potter Professor
Today we are joined by our friend Raychel McKelvy! Within minutes, Raychel blows my mind with some of the symbolism in the books and the conversation only gets better from there.
Rachel is an actress, a writer as well as an assistant professor of communications at Moody Bible Institute. She also happens to a be a Ravenclaw! Be sure to follow Raychel on Instagram.
Raychel's professor Ted Sherman posts his lectures on Youtube.
LOVE being a kid again!
Sarah and Sam help me feel like a kid again. I LOVE this show!
Your best one thus far! Loved the interview with Lilly!
Glad you inspired me to read the series, and loan me the books !
