Happy June—glad you joined us! In this episode, Frank promotes reading as a way to improve mental health and reveals that he has not read a certain classic novel (to Crystal's shock). Then they discuss their recent reads. Frank's read is an exciting modern thriller—The Plot by Jean Haniff Korelitz. Crystal suggests three books: a book of poetry and two books for parents looking for new bedtime books to read aloud.
Then Frank and Crystal announce the book they're reading together next, The Women's House of Detention by Hugh Ryan, which has a special tie to NYPL and Frank's branch library Jefferson Market. We hope you check it out from your local library and read along with us.
