Teresa Frontado, WLRN digital editor:

I am reading Bad Feminist, a collection of essays by Roxane Gay.

She really reminds me of Nora Ephron, in that her essays make me laugh, cry and think hard about topics that I care about but seldom have the guts to tackle.

Luis Hernandez, WLRN morning anchor:

Currently I'm reading Generation X by Douglas Coupland. I had never read the book, but I knew it was one of those that was on my must-read list. And as I read it, I feel somewhat a sense of pride in being a Gen X-er, but also a bit turned off by some of the prevailing attitudes from my generation.

Nancy Klingener, WLRN Keys reporter:

I just read Killers of the Flower Moon by David Grann. It's an infuriating, heartbreaking nonfiction account of the murders of members of the Osage tribe in the 1920s. The tribe had wisely held on to mineral rights from their land in Oklahoma, which made them rich once oil was discovered there. But it also made them targets for vicious, greedy white people — some of whom had even married into Osage families.
