Celebrity reader Sheila Collins didn’t just want to tell us about her favorite book, she wanted to show us!

What a great podcast! You’re very good at this. I love the variety of participants and the way you strung it all together. I even liked what I had to say (I am usually my own worst critic)....

My heart melted when the young ladies came out of the room smiling, gave me a hug and said thank you. It was a meaningful experience for them. Thanks a million to Kitty for her openness and skill in doing this activity with our young people.

We love to listen to these as a family. It gives us great ideas for books we want to read together and extends the books we love into great discussions.
