Welcome to Tea Toast and Trivia.
Thank you for listening in.
I am your host, Rebecca Budd, and I am looking forward to sharing this moment with you.
Bookstores, libraries, and coffee shops are great places for book readings. There is something extraordinary about hearing the voice of an author reading their stories. Their voice and intonation are nuanced by the many hours of effort putting pen to paper. They created the characters, structured the plot, and lived every twist and turn that creates bumps in the storyline.
Public libraries and bookstores have expanded their reach into a global community. Book readings have gone virtual. We are learning to embrace technology in new ways. Welcome the podcast series, “Authors Reading their Books”, which brings authors and their books from across the world to your home. I invite you to put the kettle on and join the conversation on Tea Toast & Trivia.
I am thrilled to introduce Pete Springer who has graciously agreed to be our guest author reading from his book, They Call Me Mom. Pete is a former elementary school teacher (grades 2-6) in Eureka, California. He said that he retired in 2016, but from what I have read, he is far from retired. His passion will always lie with supporting education, kids, and teachers, which is demonstrated by his dedication to lifelong learning.
Thank you for joining Pete Springer and me on Tea Toast & Trivia. Authors reading their Books.
And a special thank you, Pete , for giving us insight into They Call Me Mom. You have inspired me, and I know that you have inspired readers and listeners to embrace a creative journey.
