Episode seventeen of Lexivore, has Megha and Renee tackle music, and pairings of music with books. We discuss our own genre preferences for music, briefly touch on the music our library has to offer, and discuss a few authors who use music – either directly in their books like Mercedes Lackey or in the background processes of writing like Rainbow Rowell.
We also discuss some works that are paired by subject, like the Hamilton Soundtrack with a history book, “The Good Fight: Feuds of the Founding Fathers”, or mood, like Miles Davis’s “Birth of the Cool” with R.O. Kwon’s “The Incendiaries”, or by theme, Sharon Van Etten’s “Are We There” pairing with Sally Rooney’s “Normal People”, and add a few more suggestions and recommendations along the way.
We hope you enjoy our podcast! You can listen to it Here!
