BookBreakWhite 02During the 2020 COVID lockdown, librarians Claire and Kirstra came up with the idea for Book Break: a twice-monthly video program all about books for adults. Book Break currently “airs” on Facebook Live and Youtube on the first and third Wednesdays of each month. 

We are thrilled to announce that, beginning in September, Book Break will also be available as a podcast!  

Twice a month, Claire and Kirstra discuss all things books, including what they’re reading. Kirstra leans towards science fiction and fantasy and Claire towards Historical fiction, but they both love a good murder mystery and are easily distracted by new releases.  They even share their ever-growing "Stack of Shame" to be read list and books they hate! We'll keep you up to date on all things literary with some humor and snarkiness on the side! 

Book Break regularly features themed episodes - we've done deep dives into Romance and Mystery, talked about the best Beach Reads and even Books We Broke Up With. We also feature special guests including other GPL staff, so you can get to know all of us a little better. We always include links to the books we talk about in our show notes, so it's easy to put a book on hold or add it to your own TBR list.

Subscribe to Book Break here, or wherever you listen to podcasts – simply search for “GPL Book Break.” The premiere podcast episode drops on September 7th
