Happy December! Welcome back to The Community Library, and to a whole new theme for this month! December’s theme is Classics, and we’re kicking it off with an episode that asks: what is a classic? I talk about Homer, Austen, Shelley, Dickens, Wilde, Woolf, Fitzgerald, Lee, and many, many more. I hope you enjoy this quick discussion episode!

December’s discussion pick was chosen by you, the listeners! The most suggested book was Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. We’ll be discussing that on the 15th of December, so make sure you read along and tune in!
