On Tuesday, July 2nd CBC's All in a Day book panel featuring OPL's Ann Archer and Sean Wilson of Ottawa Writers Festival discussed their picks for the month. July's recommendations include a wide-ranging, readable history of the founding of America; an epic that follows the life of a young woman in Iran through the decades before and after the revolution; a SciFi exporation of the nature of human consciousness; and a short, but impactful love story set in Tanzania and Mozambique at a time of violence, war and massive change. You can find the books listed below and listen to their discussion at the following link https://www.cbc.ca/listen/live-radio/1-92-all-in-a-day/clip/15723502-july-book-panel .
