:: marilynne robinson interview ::

The Rabbit Room (one of my favorite blogs) posted an NPR interview with Marilynne Robinson (one of my favorite authors). Terry Gross asked Robinson about her second novel, Gilead. The interview is a worthwhile listen, and you already know I believe Gilead is a must-read book.

But did you know that Marilynne Robinson and I share the same birth date - November 26th? I think that's important somehow.

reserved a copy of Gilead at the library-sounds wonderful and I know you have good taste! Did i tell you my copy of "peace like a river"came? had to buy it. I can hardly wait to read it with a highlighter in hand!
Oh and to whoever mentioned Paperback swap here-THANK YOU! Wish I would have known your name to tell them you referred me- can i still do that?
