Avatar
By Emily Davis
In which I read my book for young people one chapter at a time.
Why was the Library empty at 2 o'clock?
Find out in Leandra's Lost Library (formerly known as The Library Book.)

Part audio book and part writing workshop, the podcast invites young people to be a part of the writing and editing process of novel creation.

Former Second Chapter
In which Leandra returns to the library to read her book and finds things amiss. I have folded this Chapter into the new Chapter One so I'd suggest listening to that episode instead. If you're a completist and want to hear how these chapters have changed, proceed with pleasure. If you've already listened to the new Chapter One, skip ahead to Chapter Three.

Former First Chapter
In which we meet Leandra and her library.  This is the older version of this chapter. If you want to hear what it was like before all the changes, listen here. But the best beginning now is called "The Library After School" and Chapter One.  The Library Book is a novel for young people by Emily Rainbow Davis. It is a work in progress so questions and drawings and thoughts from young people are welcome and encouraged.
