Books often inspire curiosity and now there’s a podcast for that! Introducing The Curious Reader podcast, hosted by Stacey, Goffstown Public Library’s Teen Services Library Assistant, and Melissa Mannon, Goffstown High School Librarian and Certified Library Media Specialist. The Curious Reader logo art was created by Lorelei Mannon.

In their first episode, Stacey & Melissa discuss the young adult book “The Silence Between Us” by Alison Gervais and explore the questions that ignited their curiosity to seek information beyond the book such as Deaf Culture, Deaf President Now, Deaf Education, and Cochlear Implants.
