Our book club reconvenes to discuss a novel that's been compared to Elizabeth Strout's Pulitzer Prize winner 'Olive Kitteridge.'

Guests: Lewis Robinson, author of the novel 'Water Dogs' and 'Officer Friendly and Other Stories.' His short fiction and essays have appeared in Sports Illustrated, Tin House, The Missouri Review, The New York Times Book Review and on NPR’s program Selected Shorts.
  Genevieve Morgan, Writer and Islandport Press Editor.  She's the author of the first 2 books in the 5 Stones Trilogy ('Fog of Forgetting' and 'Chanterelle') as well as 'Undecided - Navigating Life and Learning After High School.'
  Bill Lundgren, adjunct professor of English at Southern Maine Community College and and a regular book reviewer/contributor to the literary blog billanddavescocktailhour.com.

Jennifer walked into her college radio station as a 17-year-old freshman and never looked back. Even though she was terrified of the microphone back then — and spoke into it as little as possible — she loved the studio, the atmosphere and, most of all, the people who work in broadcasting. She was hooked. Decades later, she’s back behind the radio microphone hosting Maine Public Radio’s flagship talk program, Maine Calling. She’s not afraid of the mic anymore, but still loves the bright, eclectic people she gets to work with every day.
