Word of the Week: You deserve a RESPITE, with Guest Rena Marthaler

Word of the Week  for  April 21, 2014

Our guests for this week's Word of the Week video are Rena Marthaler and her friend. 

Rena is a fourth grader living in Portland Oregon with her two dogs, Bruno and Jaz. She wrote her first novel, Magic The Crest, during National Novel Month (NaNoWriMo YWP) - just like us! Magic The Crest is about a group of ten-year-old girls who battle mythological creatures in search of the Crest.

You may listen to the live official WOW announcement broadcast each Monday at 7:20AM on WEEU 830AM from "The voice of Berks County and Beyond."
