Episode 92: Interview with Emma Straub author of This Time Tomorrow



“Libraries and bookstores are the most important spaces in the world to me.” ~ Emma Straub

For this wonderful episode I had the pleasure of hosting author Emma Straub for her latest book, This Time Tomorrow. We talked about the book, NYC and Brooklyn of the 1990s, going back in time, and Emma’s love for libraries and independent bookstores. This Time Tomorrow by Emma Straub asks the age old question, if you could revisit your teenage self, what would you do differently? Oh gosh, please don’t miss this special story of love and family and friendships – it’s terrific.

Emma Straub recommends, I’ll Be You by Janelle Brown; Book Lovers by Emily Henry; By the Book by Jasmine Guillory

E74: Interview with Naomi Krupitsky



They say you can’t go home again but I sure did, right back to Brooklyn, NY with author Naomi Krupitsky’s debut novel The Family.  Set in early 20th century Brooklyn, The Family is a captivating debut novel and coming-of-age story about the tangled fates of two best friends, Sophia and Antonia, who are both daughters of the Italian mafia. My copy of The Family is covered in sticky notes, Krupitsky’s prose is beautiful, and I can’t wait for you to read it. Thank you so much for joining me Naomi!

The Family is a November 2021 Read With Jenna Pick and a NYT Bestseller!

Naomi recommends: Matrix by Lauren Groff; and Beasts of a Little Land by Juhea Kim
