Marieke Nijkamp is back!

| E:200

As we celebrate turning 200, we welcome back our 1st ever guest, author Marieke Nijkamp! We sat down for a live event at our home library, Cuyahoga County, to discuss her latest NY Times bestseller, Before I Let Go. Marieke goes into using setting as a character, why she creates her own towns and answers audience questions about how she knew she wanted to be a writer.

During our intro we also announce the winners of our Cats/Dogs photo contest. Special thanks to Kobo for the Kobo Aura ONEs we were able to give away.

Take a listen and happy reading!
