Sarah Threlkeld of Happy Reading

Interview Outline:

Today I am welcoming fellow podcaster and librarian extraordinaire Sarah Threlkeld to the show! We chat about her podcast, Happy Reading, Little House in the Big Woods, what middle grade books we’ve been reading lately, and geek out a little bit on library circulation stats.

If you haven’t yet checked out her middle grade podcast called Happy Reading – you are in for a treat and I know you are going to love it just as much as I do. I’ll put a link to her show in our show notes so you can find it right away. http://happyrdng.blogspot.com/p/a-little-about-me.html
