★ A Midsummer’s Night Stream

ears2wideWith the release of episode 5 this week, we’re halfway through season one of the BOOK CITY ★ Roanoke Podcast. Have you listened in yet? In each half-hour conversation we sit down with a city builder and dive into what has turned out to be a rich theme: Identity and Action.  How does the written word helped shape a sense of self, and then how do we put that to work into the world around us.

Just to encourage you to subscribe, listen, and rate the podcast, here are the conversations to date. Watch for the next release on Thursday, August 22: Roanoke County Director of Libraries Shari Henry.
