The Village Podcast from The Bookshelf

Apr 12, 2016

Have you seen our new site? Go, now, we'll wait -

We are so excited to have it launched and to have all of our blogs, reviews, articles and calendars in the same place.

Building the site (and re-designing, and re-designing, and re-designing) felt like a life changing event for everyone at The Bookshelf, which reminded us of some of the books that have had a huge impact on our lives.

Steph talks about the first time she understood what narrative can be, and Candice thinks back to being a precocious and curious child.
