The Librarian

Just received ...

... an email promoting the latest Bat Segundo podcast and thought it'd be of interest to my writing buddies, since it "features a variety of litbloggers, publishing insiders and authors talking about their BookExpo experiences, as the conference is unfolding. Our Young, Roving Correspondent, alas, was operating off of scant sleep, so we apologize too for his caffeinated exuberance."

To listen, go to the Bat Segundo site and choose #42 (ultimate question anyone?) under "Current Shows" ... no ipod or other such device necessary for listening ... your regular computer will do just fine. Enjoy!
