Tune in to hear Betsy on Radio West (KUER, 90.1 FM) for the Holiday Book Show — this morning at 11 a.m., and again tonight at 7 p.m. (or always available as a podcast at http://www.kuer.org). She’ll be appearing with Ken Sanders and Catherine Weller, and the trio will cover the season’s best books for the holidays and beyond. Christmas shopping: nearly solved.
