The enjoyable and informative "2-Minute Reviews" will cover both adult fiction and non-fiction titles published in 2017 and early 2018 and written by Oregon (and perhaps a few Washington) authors. Titles will generally be limited to adult audiences, but some YA and youth titles may make an appearance.
Carissa Barrett presents general fiction, Chris Myers will cover genre fiction and graphic novels, and Bill Baars returns to bring you up to speed on non-fiction titles.
