Anthony Moll and Cece discuss all things books, including awards, festivals and new trends in the publishing industry. They'll talk about the poetry, fiction and memoir on the their bookshelves. They'll also chat with fellow writers and lit educators from the local and national scene. And just like your Twitter feed, they will inject a dose of #popculture in every podcast. Think of it as a scholarly critique gumbo with a dash of ratchet. Tune in with a cup of coffee or some whiskey neat.
