"There's a lot of adults that can learn how to behave as a human being from this very young man. Yeah there are a lot of people that can learn a lot of different things from trevor lawrence. You talked about his personality. Humility the leadership ability but there are a lot of people that are really fascinated by the talent. So you have to tell me about this. This throw that i keep hearing about. It's called the throw versus mary pearson. In the playoffs the semifinals back in two thousand sixteen. What am i missing. Tell me about throw. It just came coming off that big win on the road against woodward academy. They were at home yet. Feel good about it and right out of the gate. carter's will was down fourteen. Nothing there was a very rare turnover and touchdown and then another quick touchdown. So there's carter's well playing at home down fourteen. Nothing leads them down the field and it was. I can't remember the down. But i remember him just rolling. Who is right and everybody was covered. He he pump faked other quarterb. The linebacker jumps in there. He does a total spin around and turns his left throws it across the field and drops it right over the shoulder of a receiver on the other side of the field and got got his foot in bounds. And it was a touchdown in from there. They they went on and won that game rather largely after that but again down fourteen and nothing had the had the presence to make this great athletic life. I'm sure is one of a of highlight place that he made his arm guard. Israel are the how pleased it stand out to you. Well i think from a highlight perspective. I'll tell you the thing that sticks out in my mind is enjoying watching him play clemson. It was one of the first nationally televised games that he was on and watching the announcers. He was having a big game. I can't remember the opponent but listening to the announcers towards the end of the game trying to come up with something different to say and trying to come up words to describe what he was doing. And i remember putting out on social media sediment watching that i'd come up with four years worth of of words to try to describe what this guy is doing and they were having trouble getting through one college football game with it. That's that's part of the part of what i'll remember. The most of the other part. That i remember is there's isn't a local team up here that their student run twitter site decided they were going to try to talk a little bit of trash about coming into town and getting some resent revenge for a big game. That cars won rather handily the year before and trevor. They tweeted at him. And that wasn't a good thing to do. And you know he's real responsible on social media too and he just tweeted out two words wrong move and shortly after that their twitter account apologized and After that They came to carterville. Actually it was We went up to carter's Calhoun and won that game by account of fifty eight to six overlook. So obviously yeah. Obviously you don't wanna poke to bear. But let's talk about the town. Has the town feel about trevor lawrence in all these become since he's loved high school. You know it's. It's a double edged sword for me In a good way. I mean he is he is put. Carter's ville in the spotlight. Certainly were a very proud community over twenty thousand people. We've got or the home of ronnie.

So are there any writers that you think are similar to you writing is like you use similar phrases or stumbling that? Maybe Ellie. Blake, wrote frost blood, which is really cool book about a girl who has frost powers in a world full of people firepower.

That's great. So what made you want to be an author? Well. I grew up as a child who had asthma and when I was little, I would have to take a lot of medications one of which was like a big machine like a big breathing machine that had a mask, the Delaware way at administered missed medicine and so when I was doing that the machine was very loud. So it was really hard to like watch TV or really do much of anything My mom would reach me because when she would sit behind me, I could hear in my ear. And so when she would read to me, I wasn't a sick kid anymore you know I was Harry Potter under the stairs or a hobbit on an adventure or princess you know going after a dragon or anything like that and so I loved the adventure I loved the escape and I think even in today's world there's there's so much negativity in the world that I loved to create something. Where where people can go and they can't escape and I just have such an active imagination that I love sharing my stories with other people and I hope that they bring them joy and that they can enter into these stories and maybe see what my characters go through and come back to the world a little happier a little bit more prepared to face their obstacles in their own lives. I love that so much that is like what are the sweetest stories I've ever heard on? That is really amazing. D did You have any specific favorite books as a kid?

with a bunch of local leaders plus I'll be joined by another expert on Florida's connect unemployment system think of it like a second opinion we recently had a top IT expert on to explain why the system so messed up and what needs to be done to fix it and now we're gonna get another in depth take on it I just I want to talk to somebody else and see what they have to say about all of this and the president and CEO of disaster recovery institute international is gonna be on to offer up some important vice to businesses on what to think about when re opening they work with with big companies AT&T Disney G. the department of defense in terms of how these different places can start to reopen so some great advice coming up later on in the show all of that more on the way our top story today Americans continuing to ignore public health guidelines let's start with more trouble on a United Airlines flight a New Jersey woman says she dealt with another pact United flight photos taken by Mary Pearson who seventy six just passengers in every seats on Thursdays two thirty PM flight from San Juan to Houston with no room for social distancing San Juan to Houston a packed flight no one it's I know did that surprise you a little bit like if it was Miami to New York I would say okay that's enough not surprising it filled up like that Sam one to Houston and others I mean he would want to get out of San Juan all the sudden they got out there on a cruise or something who knows even worse the woman who sat next to Pearson wasn't wearing a mask you're sitting right next to someone who's seventy six years old now and you're not wearing a mask Pearson said she got on the plane with a bandanna on and as soon as the plane took off she took it off and never put it back on she said she expected the airline to make sure that every other seat was left empty and the passengers were wearing masks but the virus wasn't even mentioned after boarding at three of our friends flew on jet blue American and southwest and they all have the middle seat empty United Airlines said the beginning next week it would allow customers on flights expected to be packed to rebook or receive a travel credit they also claim they require passengers and crew to wear masks on board but that definitely I mean didn't happen on Pearson's flight and she's got the pictures to prove it hello Frank in route is that they'll look it's rude not to wear a mask sitting right next to somebody regardless specially stranger like if it's your wife for something that's a completely different story but on a plane with strangers and you can see she's older meaning she's more vulnerable than a lot of people N. no mask it taken off the flight deck I guess we talked about this last week and I said people are not gonna want to wear a mask for up to two and a half hour three hour flight they're gonna want to take it off they're gonna want to bend the rules to these people just breaking the rules and that's going to become a huge problem and get this the top three US airlines have told their flight attendants not to enforce S. injures not to make sure that they comply with their policy requiring face coverings not to enforce that rule they same courage usage but don't enforce it Eric in delta and United have told employees they can deny boarding anyone at the gate he was not wearing a face covering any providing mass to passengers who don't have one inside the plane different story in a message to pilots which was obtained by Reuters American said once on board in off the gate the face covering policy becomes more lenient the flight attendants role is informational not enforcement with respect to the face covering policy can spokesman Joshua freed said American like other US airlines requires customers to wear face covering while on board and this requirement is enforced at the gate while boarding we also remind customers with announcements bill during boarding at departure all three airlines offer exemptions for kids or people with medical conditions or disabilities and of course when people are eating or drinking so there are some exemptions American said this the flight attendants if the customer chooses not to comply for other reasons please encourage them to comply but do not escalate further likewise if a customer is frustrated by another customer's lack of face covering please use situational awareness to de escalate the situation now several airline union groups have called for a federal mandate on measures including masks social distancing cleaning things like that you're gonna require it but you're not going to enforce it now I understand they don't want to have confrontation after confrontation after confrontation wall mid flight something that would likely happen but look at this the policy you're not gonna enforce that's my question but I mean I think it's it's you would think that we on the other captain of the airline or the cap to the plane you're flying on to make an announcement I would say when you when you're on board when you're getting ready for take off encourage people you please at this time you have your Matt's place put please put it on we encourage you to keep it on throughout the other flight as a courtesy to the other passengers and so we can have a safe trip then mid flight when they start serving your gonna serve beverages and stuff you know keep your mouse what you're finished with your you know cocktails or whatever but you're right back on that sort of thing do it in three you know stages essentially and then hopefully I would hope that people will comply but I can I've been on so many flights were people get rambunctious they don't want to be paid into the rules are using cell phones years ago when could use cell phones when you're on the plane so this is gonna be a big problem in the initial rollout what obviously rude but it's also dangerous I mean an airplane is like the last place you want somebody not to have a face covering I mean you're in close quarters with a bunch of strangers we've we've seen all the images I mean I've seen you know those guys digital demonstrations about how the air moves and how germs spread on an airplane and with the virus is contagious is this one you're not gonna take proper precautions you not gonna follow the rules that's that's insane I can go on a flight because if I saw somebody on the plane wasn't wearing the face mask was ignoring the rules it would be an incident there's no way around you would lose it I would lose it that's that's insane and look it's it's a difficult spot for the flight attendants I get it because you don't want to have you know blow after blow up when you're thirty thousand feet up but also these people put me entire plan at risk if I were the pilot in I would I would do the the recommendation and the explainer at the beginning and I would follow it up with one of the I mean thousands of heartbreaking stories about you know different people and what they've gone through because they were infected with this virus and and dot I liked yeah I would do that and that and the healthcare workers the nurses well you're putting your potential yeah the flights I I'd I'd that's what I would shame them and I would I would guilt them into put the damn mask back on that's a really good idea a restaurant in Castle Rock Colorado reopened on Sunday and served hundreds of customers mother's day meals with no social distancing measures despite the state's safer at home order April error a lot now the owner of C. and C. coughing kitchen said the restaurant open to support the constitution and stand up for what's right there was only one person wearing a face mask inside the restaurant even my Colorado's order doesn't even allowed dining service at all right now it's not like you know here where you can do it twenty five percent the restaurant tweeted quote we are standing for America's small businesses the constitution and against the over reach of our governor in Colorado in a tech president trump the owner also said to a local news outlet we did our time we did our two weeks risen sends were trying to stop the spread of a virus here and that she wasn't concerned about the virus spreading in a restaurant because we wash and sanitize everything anyway so she has no idea how the virus spreads apparently because that I mean that's great do you wash and sanitize but if everybody's packed in and if you see the pictures I mean that you can't move it's like standing room only and nobody's wearing face masks I mean that's not stopping anything it's always I'm I mean I get uncomfortable when either someone I hear them Sniffles or cough a little bit when I'm on a flight and they're like oh when I'm outside walking steps in and nobody's around me I try to hold in a cost because I'm afraid somebody's going to see if they're gonna think I'm coronavirus okay but I was going that's a little extreme yeah the art of the flight scenario but invariably you know I'm always concerned about that because I'm flying up to New York the last thing I wanna do is get sick on the plane which happened me last year and I got sick on a Tuesday I was there until Saturday and I was miserable at some some messes your whole vacation yeah and then invariably I when I come back if I'm not sick I get sick on the the flight back and when it comes to these people they want to protest all the stuff look I would respect it a lot more if you did the social distancing effect if you did what the White House your tags president trump and you didn't follow the rules that he put out the recommendations that he put out social distancing wearing face masks when you can't restaurant obviously reading that's why you want to make sure everybody separated anyone capacity but low right now yesterday the restaurant had its licence indefinitely suspended good I while I mean look not even trying it's one thing if you say look I got to reopen I I would be sympathetic they said look we just we we have to re open we'll do it at you know limited capacity will spread people out we'll have the employees were facemask all that kinda stuff then it's like okay you're serious about it you know this this is not serious with.
"mary pearson" Discussed on No Challenges Remaining
"They play in this historic final and they get into a station wagon to pose with the trophy and I asked the W. T. A. If I can go and I jump into the back of the station wagon with Venus and Serena as they go down the rickenbacker causeway key Biscayne to pose on the beach. I don't see anyone doing that. I mean I just I think. Part of this is about the growth of women's tennis. But I I have this discussion with Billie Jean King. And it's all very collegial. Would we adore her? And sometimes she says you know back in my day. We would all pile into the station wagons to go to the tournaments. We would have to hand out brochures and now these women make millions of dollars and I say good. This is an earmark S. I mean I'm happy that the W. T. As in a place where the two biggest stars win a tournament and people aren't mooching rides in the station wagon as they go to the driving. There's sort of level of and you know it's at the expense of access and as a journalist you you never really liked that and I think sometimes you can go too far but I think it's a real sign of growth that you don't have this sort of free for all. The you mentioned Tiger King You know. Tiger team could not be made about the NFL Ryan. I think in some ways it's a really As a positive sign for the WPA that we're in a much different world from everyone everyone for themselves and And anyone can walk into any. There's no restricted access. And we've moved to a different world. How did how did you build up trust between yourself and these players and also these families because I mean you are most the protagonist of its booker in their teens? So how how did you sort of a your relative? That obviously as I felt this in the beginning my reporting career to when I was closer in age to most of the players it was sort of an advantage for people to relate to them. But these are you know teenage girls you were talking to mostly from different backgrounds and stuff and I'm just curious what relationship building was like and I guess you must have known them a bit. You've been on tour before that but what it was like getting that deeper accessing one part. You're in Slovakia with Martina Hingis. Smith's book what was it like. You know getting to know these players and building up book level closeness with a lot of these different people when they're at the peak of their fame in their in their careers at the same time Yeah I it's a good question. I mean I think again I show up at these events and you show up in in. I mean you you to have the same sort of relationship. I think you show up at enough press conferences. Amelia island or in you know whatever Palo Alto or in San Diego and people realize you're not just doing a parachute you at the time and it was a late nineties. Sports illustrated was a huge deal. And honestly I think just by dint of of sports illustrated by the publishers. I wasn't approached because I was this dazzling tennis writer. I think it was well well. He's The guy that writes about tennis for sports illustrated. That must be our guy so I think. Sports illustrated was a lot of cachet with with the agents as well. I also think I really tried hard not to burn anyone so I would hear things that you know you could turn it around and and get a lot of clicks and do a web column I tried you know protecting my sources and I didn't write anything until the book came out so I think that that helped as well but again it was just such a smaller. It was just such a smaller ecosystem at the time that you would bump into these players in hotel lobby. You would share cars to the site. It was just such a smaller world that I think it was a lot easier for these relationships in this report a build. Because you know you you had Serena's phone number and you'd run into Richard Williams and you go out. You know Mary Pierce would say what are you doing for dinner? While there's a place in you know he'd have dinner with Mary Pearson Charleston. Just because you to knew each other and it seemed like a normal thing to do so You know I think I'd like to credit myself with all this rapport building skills. But I think a lot of it again was just a function of function of the Times. When when you talk those things you your nerves. At burning people with with their other things you remember specifically about revelations or quotes or something in the in the book that you were about the especially explosive. If you can remember back to those I I mean the ones that come to mind for me like the Richard Williams stuff that you have all this background and sort of calling out a lot of his lying on through like how lucy was the truth but while also playing paying him Dupree's for the results he got but I'm just if that something you were thinking of or what was it. They were most nervous of not burning until it was time to comment. What did you see as the most sort of flammable things in the book you know man? I should've reread the book in preparation for this. I know I mean some of it was that yeah some of your Monica Seles. I mean some of it was just People were very candid and I appreciated that and tried to respect that some of it was just sort of Gossipy I. I can't remember embarrassed. Having remember was made the book but you know there was some crazy story about Cornucopia in Scottsdale. We're both her Russian hockey player suitors. Yes I tweeted out that excerpt actually as I was reading because it was spectacular. Yeah we're Federov shows up with a dozen bouquet. The dozen wrote like some certain number of roses after Barack proposed and Davenport's in there watching this happen both both hockey players and those are like big star players to yeah so You have Annakournakova picture. The scene here now now that the limitations as off I I can. I can wrote my friend L. D. into this too but the This is big an athlete and I think we should. We should talk about this to you. Know whether it's women's Tennis Anna Corner. Cova this was really a moment in time for all of Women's sports but Annakournakova is this subject of immense fascination beyond tennis and he's playing the small event in Scottsdale in two of the biggest stars in the NHL in the middle of the season both converge on Scottsdale to try and win her Imagine I can't believe I put them in the book. But it's in twenty years ago to a magic wand there's as cool and rational and straight laces you'll lindsay is sitting there in the lobby or whatever and we wait a second. I can saw the other. Nhl all-star here the other night it was a It was a bizarre scene that I I. I did put in the book but I did not write about it the minute I heard about it which You know I suppose in another Texan restraint temptation but no I mean. I think it's important. This was the year two thousand was the year that was showcased and keeping them. It's a year after the women's World Cup. This is the dawn of the Internet. Women's sports are finding traction. That sports illustrated has a whole separate sports illustrated for women. Espn is in women's sports and it's also an interesting time because men's tennis is not particularly as pre Federer and you sort of have Sampson Agassi. But they're both getting on in that storyline at somebody that had been played out so I think women's tennis really was the story within tennis. It was really caught this women's sports buzz and I think it also was sort of very much in keeping with sort of where we were socially much broader than that so it was a strange moment of time. And you had this impossibly rich cast. Did you guys see cheer? I've so date sort of cherry pick this cast and everybody feels a role. And that's what you had at the time in women's tennis organically so you had the these two sisters who just had a at a backstory that was completely unprecedented and corner. Cova and you had Monica. Seles was the tragic figure and Steffi. Graf was leaving. And you had Lindsey and Camp Riyadi in every week Mary. Pierce wins the French Open and our return to FRY. I mean it just. You couldn't make this up and you had incredibly rich cast of characters and he's really good players and there was a lot of friction and nobody was shy about the friction. It really was very much a A moment in Time John. How did you kind of go about in terms of like Just the process of okay. I'm I'm going to write this book. that decision was made before the two thousand season or after I'm trying to remember the the timeline before I think I'd been approach in the summer of nineteen ninety nine. Okay so then. You're Oh yeah no. I GUESS. My question is okay. You've committed to this two thousand seat in season to write about. Obviously we can control many things but we cannot control results so as the season is unfolding. Is You know you have this title? Venus isn't even playing for the first few months of this of the year. Like I can only imagine just from I was thinking about those reading. Like putting my self in your shoes. Like moments of maybe panic or her like concern like is the season going to unfold in a way that is meaningful for me to write about like with respect is can Cheetah Martinez had won the French. What you say about that we love the Cheetah. The the irony is just detour. Here the the irony is in two thousand seven. I was approached about doing a book on Roger Federer. Who in two thousand eight you know has as you recall right losted lasted. Australia and that this scrawny kid joke each one and he got his doors blown off in the French Open by Nepal. And I'm thinking what the Hell Am I gonNA to Roger Federer Book when it looks like His days are past. This was a little different because I think the publisher understood that half of this was really just about the cast of characters here on. I guess you're right. I mean I so I go to Australia. It was the first time I'd ever been there. And you didn't have Venus and Serena which I think I was probably from a narrative standpoint rooting for but it was a pretty cool story. That amid all this chaos you have level-headed Lindsay Davenport win the title. And this was someone who is immediately she was. She was very cool. It was very open. We had a relationship prior so we knew each other a little bit and went with her as she. She went down the yere in a boat and the whole time to his muttering. About how dare I don't? I don't like this thing is so cheesy and This is a part of the job. I Hate Lindsey was great and you know remains great to this day but the Australia got off to a good start and the spring had You know your usual garden variety craziness and then you're right. You get to the French Open. If could cheat Martinez won. It may have been a little fraud instead you have Mary. Pierce was a great story.
"mary pearson" Discussed on The Tennis Podcast
"I saw the game. If i had a hole or something that was not up to snuff at a very high level i wanted. I had some work to do and i was willing to go out and put time in <hes> to get that right to be at to improve. That's what it's all about and it'd be multifaceted. It was pretty instance. It's with kafelnikov when when you when you met him i mean how well did he know him. The reason i ask i mean you talk about that. When my sort of <hes> initiation into the tennis tour and i happen to be coming along a pasty waste a pasty white kind of british land straight university trying the deal with marcelo rios and you've kafelnikov who i think to this day two of the most difficult characters i've ever dealt with in the tennis world. What what was he like yet and i basically had very common grounds. <hes> we come from two different parts of the planet <hes> two different cultures he came from nothing that he came from outside a little town and so <hes> i just did the hall of fame with him and i hadn't seen him in four for years and we spent three and a half days together and it was it was great but we reminisced a lot from the first time we met to how he viewed things yet you evy was a a very straightforward cat and and and you know my speech kinda got caught in a cut off and i had to cut off a few pages of the thing because you know it kinda around a little bit long with all mary pearson voluntary but i i one thing i did say. He didn't like the media very much. He didn't like social media. He didn't like to to his own horn. He wanted his record to stand on its own. He said we used to talk about a lot. I say parts.

"mary pearson" Discussed on What Book Hooked You?
"So, yeah, I mean it was it was all. All of those things kind of together that, that changed the game for me working at one more page and meeting area writers and, and all of the reading older like, again, again, again, writing after all the time and all that work finally, there's a book the beholder, which comes out on June fourth from Harper's teen. So give me the rundown of what this book is about the beholder is about a goal names day less. She is essential elect of a country. Potomac. It's a small like act based community, she would in, and she content there, and she is planning to hopefully, Mary, void that she's liked forever and has always been friends with and and very public setting. He turned her down and her stepmother uses the situation as an excuse to send her way to look for someone else to marry. And she clearly she quickly realizes that. Other things are going on, but she develops relationships with the crew members of our ships, the whole there, and she has incredible adventures, and England and, and nargile, which is sort of an analog for Norway, but it's not history of the world looks a little bit different. And that's one and then book to you have to find out, so. Said that you were after reading books for pleasure, that you kind of came upon this idea that kind of sit this whole thing in motion. So what was that? Initial idea that got you started in all of this. For the book were the host in which you've got a lot of outside pressure affecting how for different people fall in love. And that was really thing that was interesting to me, just how I was possible to let somebody who controls your life. It take whether or not you're going to let someone and like, isn't it? The trail of yourself to allow yourself to fall in love when somebody so horrible has set you up with that person, it was stuff like that, that was running around on my brain. And so then with the host and fairy tales of being maybe that nugget of the idea. And then, as those two years go on, you're working at the bookstore, you're getting Merson getting familiar with different books. Was there a book or certain books that you feel really influenced you during those two years that really helped to shape either the story or just you as a writer? I'll give you two. I will QC's in particular so. I really I really, really loved this election theory. It's such great fun. It's so romantic. I you know, I think it was encouraging for me as a lover of all things fluffy. Romantic, you know, girl in a dress books. It was encouraging for me again, especially having been such a small about about contemporary and fun, generally fun reading growing up. It was encouraging for me to see there. There was a market for stuff that was fun and fluffy and escapist and, you know, and that, that kind of reading is not in any way lesser than, you know, books, specifically written to educate, or to challenge, you know. So that was that was one thing, it was encouraging for me to see how well and truly people really love books, like, cure, Catholic selection series for you. Mary Pearson's the remnant chronicles or, you know, any any of these other sort of really romantic young adult books, and then in terms of books that were advocation for me as a writer Maggie sea voters raven cycle. I mean, it was a masterclass Romy. I, I wish. I wish this were not. I don't really wish for a television show, because in vaginas right now, but I wish I could show you guys how marked up my copies of the ravens Eichel and the dreams Dev's and blue. Lily lily blue, and the raven king are like they're just. Line after line passage after passage where I just. I don't know. I for the longest time, I think I had all these ideas about what made a book work, and I, I wish I remembered, what they were, but they were definitely not right. Because it, you know, I hadn't really understood what people when they talked about books being character-driven in particular. And the ravens Eichel is. Centered so tightly around the group of friends who are codependent and just to love each other. And you know, are not always good to each other and also around the incredible set of like sense of place. I learned so much from reading books. So you mentioned that you work at a bookstore, an independent bookstore, one more page. So talk about that, just the being a sort of independent bookseller, and like, do you really sort of, you know, maybe adoptable find a book that may be is your favorite and really try to promote that book that people come in the store, and you try to read widely so of people are trying to kind of browse and searching kind of direct them towards what they might be interested in. Working in India bookstore has been a game changer for me. I, I mean, look everybody's job has days where it's just a job and, you know, you're undocking things or you're running late, and you're tire like, whatever, but I mean truly like it is such a special thing for someone to come in, you know, every now and again, it'll be like a girl who's twelve years old will come in with whether parent and she's like, I don't know what to read next and you go to the kids section, and you talk for a while. And, you know, you found out, you find out that she loves the kind of things that you of Newark eight and you can point at a classics and pointed, a new stuff. It's come out and the whole family walks out with massive smile on their face. Or, you know, the other day somebody came in and they were saying that friend of theirs about surgery and they, you know, they need some such distractions. You know, and we talk through what their preferences are and try to. Help him find good materials for different like it's just catching honor to be able to help people choose what they're going to read next. Whether it's you know, they can read or something, you know, they really want to challenge themselves and form themselves about something new, like it's just, you know, it's a really special thing to be asked to help people with that, and yeah, we do all. I mean, I try to read broadly, I since coming to look at the store, I've been reading more mysteries in particular, and still not much of a nonfiction reader. But I read a fair amount of aid, a little bit of middle grade. And I have been reading more mysteries. Those cosies interlopers and we altered have our own. The all sort of have our own real houses there about eight or nine employees. It looks very work, and we all have are John preferences. And so if there's ever a situation where, you know, I'm being asked questions about, like nonfiction variable military history or, you know, math and science nonfiction. I can either text co worker, really quickly. Or we also do this really fun thing where if you if you love a book will write a posted about it, and we take it on the spine, look. So there are little posted stuck all over the bookstore. So if the person goes to a section and they don't really know where to begin again, for people if they're, they're trying to challenge themselves, and read political nonfiction, or history, or something like that. They can go over that section and the post, it note, kind of guide them through that particular Honora so it and we also. Static and things like that we do something called L MP reads. It's a hashtag on Instagram and we all make recommendations fairly often. And yeah, we're really it's I mean any bookstore here, so special in particular, because they're I mean they're community centers. We have dozens of events every lunch. Give Lynch authors if if the best and through working there, I'm wondering his you can think of a book that maybe because you were gonna bookstore, you kind of discovered and fell in love with. And you think that if you hadn't, you would have never probably happened upon this book in any other way. About is such a good question. I can tell you about a couple of authors that I would not have covered otherwise. So Stephanie Strom is incredible young adult author that I've come to love since working at the bookstore. She wrote Princeton disguise, it's not me. It's you the date to save levaula mode. And I would never have severed her except that at bookstores we receive early reader copies from publishers, and I got one of her got an early reader copy of it's not me. It's you. And I took it home and I read it alone. My -partment. Thank god. I was alone because I rape. Like a donkey, like truly just last idiot reading her books, and she, you know, and I don't know. I just like it's been such a pleasure to watch your career and I don't know that I would have found her like where I not working where I work. So we're gonna wind down, how s you questions that we do the first one being what is your favorite movie, that's based on a book. Start us by Neil Gaiman. No question. It's my go-to sort of the world is drab, and everything is dad, and I don't feel the kind of book, I mean, it's also one of those movies that I like can turn on right before fall asleep. And I don't mind that I'm gonna fall asleep because I could probably quote it line by line. But started by Neil Gaiman adaptation. It's just natural glows. The next question, then is there a book or a series, you're willing to admit you've either, never read or never finished? There's two actually I have never read the king killer chronicles. And I really really, really want to Patrick Ross. I believe. And then there's the women share chronicle series by Melina Marceca, which my dear friend, who are women who wrote the white between world. It's constantly berating. All of our writer group to read. Also, it's the Queen face series by megadeal and Turner. Joy-anna Ruth Myers. Another undermined, and she is constantly our group. Check can someone just please read this book periods so we can angst about it together. I haven't. So they're all on the list on the TV are. Finally, what is the last great book that you've read? This is a really recent one. The grace is by Laurie eve, we had her recently at the bookstore, again like exposure via bookstore. The graces is kind of a weird, which book and I remember I started it like walking home one night. Thinking watch starting to audio book, I had a twenty minute walk home. And by the time I got home, I was like I have to find other things that I can do with into this audio because I can't stop it. It's ridiculously good. It's all of the tropes, that I love so much, particularly the one that I love so much, and I hate your comparison because so many people get grumpy about it, but the trope at the beginning of twilights, you know, where you show up to a new place, and you're the sort of I, you know, disoriented new kid, and there's like a bunch of isolated mysterious hot people that is how the grace is also opens with a bunch of mysterious hot people, and, you know, new girl. And so it's all of his troops that I completely adore and then the twist just keep coming. You just don't expect any oh, so good. It's so good. I recently read an enchantment of ravens. I don't know why I left on that one for a year, but it was amazing. Now I had a story of thorns on my nightstand. And I can't wait to read that. The beholder comes out on June, the fourth congratulations and wish you in this book all the best. And thank you so much for having me, really, really appreciate it and the opportunity to just ramble for a little while. That all the things I love. And that brings us to the end of this, and I wanna thank in a bright for coming on the podcast. Her book, the holder comes out on June the fourth again from Harper teen, I hope you'll check that out. And if you enjoy this odor, police check out some of the other conversations I have with a lot of great y authors. I'm Brock Shelley and until next time keep reading..
