The Weekly Reader

If you have ever been to New Orleans, you know that there is something special, almost magical, about the city. On this edition of "The Weekly Reader," we feature two novels that capture the unique physical and emotional landscape of The Big Easy, Margaret Wilkerson Sexton’s "A Kind of Freedom" and C. Morgan's "The Floating World." 

Almost every Irish Catholic friend I can think of has a “crazy nun story.” On this edition of "The Weekly Reader," we feature books about nuns, including Alice McDermott’s latest, "The Ninth Hour" and "Saints for All Occasions," the fourth novel by J. Courtney Sullivan.
