You can find two new One Book – One Lincoln recordings available online for you to hear more about this year’s book and related events.
From the One Book programming committee, Layne and Scott appeared on NET Radio’s “Friday Live” on September 12th. That “Friday Live” episode is available on the NET web site as a full-episode podcast. Listen to the whole thing if you’re interested in arts activities in the area, or zip ahead to the 49:40 mark to listen to the One Book – One Lincoln section.
Also, Layne, Marcy, Scott and Lisa, from the libraries, joined host Diane Gonzolas for an episode of 5 City-TV’s “City Focus” all about this year’s One Book – One Lincoln. The episode will be airing on 5 City-TV on Time Warner Cable’s channel 5, but is also available on the 5 City-TV web site and on YouTube. We’ve also embedded the YouTube version on this year’s One Book – One Lincoln web site [ click here for the page ] — so you have numerous viewing options. This episode runs just under 30 minutes.
