With "Banned Books Week" celebrated last week and "Teen Read Week" coming up Oct.18-24, exploring the world through literature seems to always be in season. For professors at the University of Kentucky, books have impacted their lives and careers in surprising ways.

Nevertheless, we want to feature them and let our listeners get to know our faculty a bit better! This time, we interview Beth Connors-Manke from the Writing, Rhetoric, and Digital Studies Department.
