Boise author's new kids book sparkles as it travels through time

If you’re a parent of a pre-teen, there’s a new book to get on your radar. Boise author Mindy Thompson’s “The Bookshop of Dust and Dreams” is set in New York in 1944, a time when war shaped so much of American family life.

Thomspon speaks with Idaho Matters to tell us more about her new fantasy novel that is geared for kids, but will be a fun read for anyone who enjoys an escape.

Frankie Barnhill is the Senior Producer of Idaho Matters, Boise State Public Radio's daily show and podcast. She's always interested in hearing surprising and enlightening stories about life in the West. Have an idea for Idaho Matters? Drop her a line!
