Have Earbuds, Will Travel!

With HCPL's Summer Reading Program kick-off right around the corner, it’s time to get those audio books requested and/or downloaded! In keeping with the “Have Book, Will Travel” theme, I have selected a few travel memoirs to transport you to any part of the globe instantly. So whether you’re taking a plane or a car ride or just enjoying a much needed staycation this summer, get ready to set off on an amazing adventure. As for me, I plan to start my travels by heading to Afghanistan with Khaled Hosseini’s (author of the Kite Runner) newest book, And the Mountains Echoed.
