Professional Book Nerds

We're not just book nerds. We're professional book nerds! We are staff librarians who work at OverDrive, the leading app for eBooks and audiobooks from public libraries and schools. It's our job to discuss books all day long so we thought, "Why not share the conversation!" Hear about the best books we've read, get recommendations, and learn about the hottest books coming out that we can't wait to dive into. Every title discussed is available to borrow through public libraries. Get started reading at overdrive.com and subscribe to our podcast today!

On today's episode, Adam and Jill welcome Lizzy Saxe to the show to nerd out about the connection between food and stories. We get into the power of food in fantasy novels, their favorite fictional meals from books, wonderful food memoirs of the past, and the new and unique forms of cookbooks coming out including graphic novels and comics.

Fair warning, this episode will make you hungry!
