The books we read as childrenand those that were read to uscreate some of our strongest literary memories. When the time comes for us to buy Childrens literature, those are the books we look for. Unfortunately, some of them fall out of print. Jane Nissen, a veteran of the childrens literature publishing industry, is working to make some of these memorable classics available again through her publishing company, Jane Nissen Books.

Join Simeon and Kghia on Sunday at 1:00 pm when we talk to Ms. Nissen about her long career, her current projects, and what drives her revive the books she publishes. I hope you will join us in-world at the Off the Shelf Podcast Studio (slurl) or listen online on RadioRiel.

Note: This show is our last of the season. Off the Shelf will return in the autumn. Thanks so much for listening!
