The Point Gets Crafty!


This morning we discussed arts & crafts books, and because it was a pledge morning at WCAI the morning show was a bit shorter than usual. So to hear the complete show (which adds eight more minutes of arts & crafts) you can listen to the podcast or listen tonight at 7:30 when the complete show is broadcast. Included in this list are books that we didn’t have time for even with our extra 8 minutes!
