The Great American Read: Lily Mendoza

Lori Walsh

In The Moment ... September 17, 2018 Show 423 Hour 1

This week's Great American Read explores first-person narratives and other ways authors tell stories of characters on personal journeys. From navigating the teen years through discovering our "chosen families," these are the novels that help us find ourselves at any age. You can see it Tuesday, September 18 on SDPB-TV. And keep voting for your favorite books until the winner of "America's Most Loved Novel" is announced in October.

SDPB has been traveling the state, seeking out writers and readers to talk about what makes a great book.

Book store owner Lily Mendoza joined In The Moment to discuss the impact that literature have had in her life. Her Bird Cage Books in Rapid City draws poets and readers along with visitors from out-of-state.
