Lansingburgh Book Picks for September
Punching, poisons, “murderbots,” and. . . fashion? Laurie Dreyer, manager of Troy Public Library’s Lansingburgh branch, talks about these and more. Hear about the many benefits of having a library card, and a bit about September’s “Banned Books Week.” Books discussed: “A Very Punchable Face” (Colin Jost, 2020); “The Botanist’s Guide to Parties and Poisons” (Kate Khavari, 2022); the series of “Murderbot Diaries” (Martha Wells, five since 2017); and “Fashionopolis: The Secrets Behind the Clothes We Wear” (Dana Thomas, 2022).
