One of our very favorites: Laura Tremaine!
On this week’s episode of Currently Reading, Kaytee and Meredith are joined by Laura Tremaine, and we are discussing:
Bookish Moments: a bookish moment of a lifetime, a new device, and a family read-aloud.
Current Reads: six books that range from poetry to memoir to thriller to to something a bit more difficult to an interesting conversation about sex in middle marriage.
Deep Dive: we are talking all things about Laura’s forthcoming book and the conversation is just pure golden goodness.
Book Presses: an unforgettable collection of essays, a dystopian novel, and advocating for therapy
