Episode 21 Interview with Susan Perabo, author of The Fall of Lisa Bellow



What a great interview with author Susan Perabo…this novel is an absolutely perfect book discussion choice. Susan has an uncanny ability to nail the honesty, warts and all, of familial relationships within the construct of this stark family drama.

Please take a listen and read this book. 

We also discussed Susan’s name appearing at the Women in Baseball exhibit at the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown! I know, right?

And from the  “If I can find a way to embarrass myself, I sure will nail it” category: in my fervor, at the end of the interview, I called Susan, “Lisa” after the title character of the book (eye-roll and rookie mistake all at once!), I apologized profusely and do hope she’ll allow another interview in the future.

Synopsis: When a popular middle-school girl is abducted in broad daylight by a masked man, the victim’s rival, Meredith, struggles with terror while their community organizes vigils and searches.

 


Episode 9 Carol Ann Interviews Author Parnaz Foroutan!



I had the absolute pleasure of hosting author Parnaz Foroutan a few weeks ago for this episode. We spoke about the book, motherhood, careers and what’s next for this terrific author. We spoke from two different coasts, so take a listen. I was thrilled to host Parnaz…please read this book.

One of my favorite go-to books when doing Reader’s Advisory is this gem of a story that you may have missed!

Published in 2015, The Girl From The Garden, is the epic tale of Asher, the head of a prosperous Persian-Jewish family. When his first marriage does not produce a male son, he makes a fateful decision that shatters his household and drives his wife Rakhel to desperate measures to preserve her status.

I apologize for my giddy behavior!
