The Lied Bookmobile will not be at its Malcolm or Fallbrook stops this Saturday, August 18. Instead, join us at the Lincoln Children’s Museum’s “Tractors, Trucks, Trains and Planes” event being held on the west Lincoln Airport grounds! (We do hope for the Bookmobile to make its regularly scheduled 3:00 to 5:00 stop at the Waverly Plaza.)
Lisa discusses a variety of non-fiction books, mostly about theater, in this new podcast.
