John Bolton bolts the dolt or is it the Dolt Bolted Bolton? That is the operative question this week as Halli and her partner in politics veteran White Correspondent Matthew Cooper tackle the top political stories of the week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show. And, we welcome the esteemed editor of the New York Times Book Review and author Pamela Paul in a conversation about one of our favorite topics: Books.

In the world of politics, there’s a lot to talk about this week beginning with the controversial exit of Donald Trump’s third National Security Advisor, John Bolton. Did Bolton bolt the dolt or did the dolt bolt Bolton? How long will Bolton keep quiet about what’s going on behind the scenes in the White House? Polls are pretty consistent, former Vice President Joe Biden still maintaining his lead in the race and still causing a lot of agita. Is Biden up for the job? Lingering in the background is Montana Governor Steve Bullock, a moderate with a record to sell. Impeachment? Guns? The Taliban? And we’re just beginning.
GAME OF THRONES author George R.R. Martin once said: “A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies…The man who never reads lives only one.” That is no small truth. Esteemed New York Times Book Review Editor and children’s books editor for the New York Times Maria Russo, share GRRM’s point of view and are on a mission to reach out to the young. Together they have written HOW TO RAISE A READER, a book on fostering a lifelong love of books from birth to teens. But make no mistake. This isn’t a primer only for parents. It is a celebration of the book, a reminder for us all that there is a vast world available to us all one bookstore, library, ebook away. In a world where way too much time is spent staring at a screen by teenagers and adults alike, HOW TO RAISE A READER might just be the gift book for all who would rather experience a thousand lives before they die, not just one.
