Time for a new episode! We answer a reader letter and discuss nerd heroes and heroines – including the question of what, exactly, are we talking about when we talk about nerd characters? What does it mean if a reader is looking for more books with nerds? We also talk about what we're reading this week, and disagree about a book we both read (shocking, truly). Enjoy!
Here are the books we discuss in this episode:
Plus, we discussed a mysterious Kathleen O'Reilly title with a science and angle-minded heroine that we couldn't remember – if you listen, let us know if you recognize that one?
Michelle Sell is, according to Sassy, “a San Fransisco-based harpist who has not released new music recently, but she has some really beautiful older music. This is one of my favorite songs to write to… you got me thinking with that post on soundtracks–that was great by the way. I don't get to see the action atop the score, just hear it, so often, when there's no dialogue, the music is the only context I have. It better say it all. When I need to write a moment where a character does some serious alone time self analysis, this song tops my playlist. Michelle's music is up on iTunes, and if our California listeners dream of a harp at their wedding (and who doesn't), she takes bookings.”
