Summer reading recommendations

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

Last week on "Chicago Tonight," host Phil Ponce led a discussion with local bookworms, who gave their recommendations for summer reading. Panelists included Jessa Crispin, editor of Bookslut; Author and Loyola professor Al Gini, and novelist Kimberla Lawson Roby.

Each panelist recommended several books for the summer but right off the bat Ponce asked for their No. 1 choices. Crispin chose Daughters of the North by Sarah Hall (HarperCollins, $13.95); Gini chose The Blue Star by Tony Earley (Little, Brown, $23.99); Roby chose The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch with Jeffrey Zaslow (Hyperion, $21.95).
