This week's episode of the Voices Podcast provides a sneak peek into the December issue of Voices from the Middle with an interview with Pernille Ripp, whose Leading the Call article talks about the ways in which teachers have the ability to create passionate readers. In the interview, our teacher panelists Alex Corbitt, Gretchen Taylor, and Katherine Sokolowski ask Pernille about her approach to talking with young readers, what books her students are reading, why diverse books are so important, and much more. In a new segment of Voices from the Bookshelf, Beth Shaum has returned from the 2016 NCTE Annual Convention and ALAN Workshop with boxes full of books and is ready to tell us about the ones she couldn't wait to read.(32:17)
