In episode 21 of Lexivore, Renee and Megha are joined by a guest, Mary Graham, in discussing ‘The Midnight Library’, a New York Times Best Seller by Matt Haig. It’s an exploration of the lives one could have lived, the things that shape us and the possibilities that open up or close behind us. We discuss the book itself, including both the work as a whole and in depth look at several sections – including one section in the middle that included a polar bear (everyone’s favorite!), and the ending with a little bit about how we expected the story to go. We had a lot of fun during that discussion!
We also briefly talk about library events and programs, including our new subscription boxes and kits like mental health, antiracism, and even baking, as well as discussing the possibility of in person programming this summer. We also chat about what we have been doing and reading, and include a brief teaser for our next episode, where we will be discussing literary culture, including literary trips, festivals, and prizes. We hope you will join us for that one, too!
We enjoyed making this podcast and hope you enjoy it as well! You can listen to it Here!
