Lemon Cake, Basketball and Bead Dogs

Jan 22, 2013


This week on The Reading Life: Aimee Bender, whose most recent novel is The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake. Aimee will be the Zale-Kimmerling writer in residence at Newcomb College Institute at Tulane University this week.

We’ll also catch up with former Times-Picayune reporter Keith O’Brien, who has a wonderful new book about a striving basketball team called Outside Shot: Big Dreams, Hard Times, and One County’s Quest for Basketball Greatness.

And we’ll hear from children’s book author Cornell Landry, who has a new seasonal treat for us: The Amazing Adventure of Mardi Gras Bead Dog.
