Shelf Care, Episode #13: Summer Scares 2021

On this episode of Booklist’s Shelf Care: The Podcast, Susan gets real scared . . . Summer Scare(d), that is! Ha ha ha ha ha, good one.

Hear from author Silvia Moreno-Garcia and librarian horror expert Becky Spratford, librarians Konrad Stump and Evelyn Gathu, and Booklist’s own Julia Smith about this year’s Summer Scares program, from how the books are selected to that one author in the UP who can only be reached if you call the gas station in town.
