Lincoln City Libraries director Pat Leach is the current host of All About Books, a weekly book-review and discussion program on NET Radio (91.1 FM in the Lincoln area, and on various other stations across Nebraska) to discuss contemporary and classic literature.
Although it dates back over 40 years, in a variety of formats and venues, since 1991 All About Books has run on NET-Radio. For many years, Charles Stephen and Otis Young co-hosted, until Young’s passing in 2009, after which Stephen was the lone host. Stephen retired from the show in 2015, and since August 2015, Pat Leach has served as host, with regular appearances by guest reviewers and interviews with regional authors. New episodes usually air every Wednesday at 12:04 p.m. local time, following the NPR news.
