Reading with Libraries podcast

This week we are talking about hiking! Right now, we are all focused on our social distancing and not doing long-distance hiking trips. But as long as we are thoughtful of our fellow hikers, heading outside for some fresh air and exercise is good for us. Even if you can’t make it out to hike, you can do some hiking with books!

This week Leigh Lenzmeier shares Walking Point: A Vietnam Memoir, by Robert Kunkel

"Bob Kunkel grew up in a large, Catholic family on a dairy farm in central Minnesota. Although he was older than some draftees, at 22, he was still young and relatively innocent. But not for long.
Kunkel recounts his experiences with so much detail that the reader can feel and smell the steamy jungle. He brings you right along with him. His story is much more than a collection of details, however. His military experience was largely mundane routine, spiced with dramatic and dangerous moments and anecdotal incidents, recounted with a dry sense of humor. Prepare for an emotional rollercoaster of a read.
