Books About Sisters on the Point with Mindy Todd

This morning on The Point with Mindy Todd we had a new experience … we all were talking from home, not in the studio! Joining Mindy and Jill this month was Kellie Porter of the Woods Hole Public Library. Due to coronavirus we could not all be in the studio, so we were all at home, but thanks to the intrepid duo of Dan Tritle and Kathryn Eident, we were all able to hear each other even if we couldn’t see each other. 

The theme this month was books about sisters, and as always we didn’t have time for everything we had on our tables. You can see some bonus titles below, as well as all of the suggestions made by listeners. If you have a suggestion, please let us know. If you missed the show you can listen to it anytime online.
