Tidewater Reads: Shine, Shine, Shine
August 23, 2016
In collaboration with libraries across Hampton Roads, Tidewater Reads is an initiative to promote the value of reading and build community by getting everyone on the same page of a good book. This year's book is Norfolk author, Lydia Netzer’s, New York Times Notable Book of 2012, “Shine Shine Shine.” Focused on a marriage filled with obstacles and uncertainty, the novel sheds the veil on seemingly mundane struggles every family faces. We'll talk with Lydia Netzer, librarians from across the region, and NASA scientists about the book and how she uses real science in her science-fiction influenced storytelling.
