An octogenarian world traveler and her book-loving daughter join Anne to discuss how reading continues to play a vital role in their relationship.

Today, Anne recommends titles featuring the compelling stories and epic tales Barbara loves most, while helping Adrienne gently introduce her mother to some fresh settings and genres.
