Earlier this month was supposed to see a big party at the University of Alaska Fairbanks’ Rasmuson Library. The building turned 50 years old. But the pandemic squashed that bash. This edition of Northern Soundings we hear from former director Paul McCarthy who discusses his long career at the Rasmuson. First, we begin with a conversation via Skype with current director Karen Jensen.

And bibliophiles won’t want to miss Chris Lott’s exploration of the many ways the love of books can veer off in unexpected directions on Katexic Clippings. You can listen to the program here.
