Penny Reid Returns!

| E:407

Hey Nerds! On today's wide-ranging episode, Penny Reid returns to tell us what she's been up to and it turns out... it's a lot! We discuss the multiple books she released in 2019, the exciting new projects she has coming in 2020, and her experiences making cheese, hanging out with wolves, and doing yoga with goats. We also chat about prison libraries, Adam running a half marathon with his Pops, and a whole bunch more. It's a lot.

If you'd like information about donating books to prisons you can find great info from Book Riot here:
