Neshama Franklin

  Host of: Turning Pages "Reading to John"  

Neshama Franklin is a passionate, eclectic reader who works at Fairfax Library. She read to her husband, John, for many years before he died.  These days, after more than 10 years on KWMR, she's now sharing short reviews and excerpts of books she's read recently, as well as reading from the classics and local authors, and occasionally telling folktales or stories from her own life. She's had some theater training, which sneaks into the readings, and in her spare time dances, hikes, and hangs out with her three beloved grandchildren. She's lived in Bolinas since 1971 and having her own radio show is like a Walter Mitty dream-come-true. Check out her weekly library blog at
