The Book Doctors: Summer Reads and Ernest Hemingway

It can be tough to read on hot, humid mornings in Kansas City in the summertime ? and then the sun also rises. Always persevering, KCUR's Maria Carter welcomed back the Book Doctors to offer ideas for your summer reading. In the first half of the program, they offer up what they've been reading and invite listeners to pitch in with their current favorites. In the second half, we wish Ernest Hemingway a happy 111th birthday and celebrate some his classic works and their impact on the rest of literature and culture. By The Walt Bodine Show
