Episode Thirty-Four - "Strange, flexible problem solvers."
This week, with special guest David Waddell...
Mind Grapes: Sam's been listening to Sheezus, and finds it a little diluted by domestic bliss; David's been stepping out of his comfort zone with The Famished Road and World War Z, but also returning to an old favourite; Alli's been reading two very different books, both by boundary-pushing women - Mindy Kaling's memoir and Kathryn Boo's exploration of Indian slum life.
Where Do We Put This?: David is here to engage us in conversation about the library as a vessel for the public imagination. Among other topics, our wide-ranging conversation touches on the reference interaction as teachable moment, the librarian as guide and listener, and the library as a space that needs to balance present needs and future potentials.
