The summer is quickly disappearing before our eyes, and before you know it, we’ll be buying school supplies and Halloween decorations.
Even though most of us don’t get summer vacations anymore, the heat of Las Vegas makes most of us cozy up indoors with some good air conditioning … and maybe even a good book.
Rebecca Colbert from the Las Vegas Clark County Library District and Stephanie Espinoza from the College of Southern Nevada Libraries join KNPR to talk their top summer reading picks.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
