What does adventure mean to you? Veteran radio host and BTSYA volunteer, Rachel Glass spearheads this exciting program about experiences and adventures. As part of our Super Smart Sundays, Rachel interviews author C.R. Kahme about her Libbie Lyndton series. The Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island has always been a retreat from the modern-day world. For C.R.’s main character, Libbie Lyndton, the Grand Hotel is far more than that - it was both a paradise for a horse-loving girl and a mystery that begged to be solved. C.R. is a great storyteller and fills us in on the joys and beauty of Mackinac Island. They also discuss dyslexia and how anyone with any disability can still do what she/he loves. Rachel also reads Cynthia Brian’s chapter, the Gift of Adventure from the book Be the Star You Are! 99 gifts for Living, Loving, Laughing, and Learning to Make a Difference. ( To expand who you are, look for the adventure in all things. Life is an involuntary bungee jump. Open yourself to the experience, savoring every sensation and crying out with joy and exhilaration. Rachel shares tips about how to stay safe and have an adventure at home during Covid-19. Celebrate your aliveness and your health. Make every day an adventure.

Bio: C.R. Kahme

Being an author carries heavy responsibilities and ecstatic joys. A lifetime of careers all centered on my visual acuity and deficits in my ability to grasp the meaning of the written word, now known to be called Dyslexia. Being a strong "Left-Brained' artist with a talent for finding color in every aspect of life, I found that words have become my color palette. Beginning my professional life as an interior designer, I began writing a "Dear Decorator" column for a New York newspaper and went on to become a reporter, and then a freelancer for Cape Cod Home magazine. The love of horses and a lifetime of memories generated from joyful moments spent on Mackinac Island, Michigan where all transportation is horse "driven". created the raw material for the rich sharing of history and fantasy through the pages of the Libbie Lyndton Adventure series. Her current books include Libbie Lyndton and the Looking Glass

Libbie Lyndton and the Lost Room

Libbie Lyndton and the Midewiwin

And more books to come.
