Today's podcast is a special episode related to the first Big Library Read pick of 2016. A couple of times a year, OverDrive offers users an opportunity to take part in a global book club through their library and this time the book choice is American Sniper by Chris Kyle, the man regarded as the most lethal sniper in United States Military History.

Big Library Read officially kicks off March 17th and in anticipation of the event, Adam sat down with Chris Kyle's widow Taya Kyle, who has written her own memoir, American Wife. Taya shares stories about her experiences as a military wife and what prompted Chris to write his book. She also discusses the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation, which assists service members, first responders, and their families.
