Episode 20! Interview with Anne Youngson author of Meet Me at the Museum



Back in August I had the absolute delight of interviewing Anne Youngson, author of the must read, Meet Me at the Museum.  I must thank Caroline Bleeke of Flat Iron Books for sending me the advanced review copy and to both Caroline Bleeke and Amelia Possanza  for helping me put this interview together. Thank you so much ladies and to Anne Youngson for taking the time to speak with me!

Meet Me at the Museum:  A disenchanted farmer’s wife and a widowed museum curator begin a correspondence over their mutual fascination with poet Seamus Heaney’s “The Tollund Man” and gradually share details from their lives, forging an unexpected bond along the way.

 


Episode 19 Interview with Rene Denfeld author of The Child Finder



I had the absolute pleasure of hosting author Rene Denfeld.                                                                                   We talked about her books, her writing and her incredible love for libraries.

“Libraries literally saved my life.” – Rene Denfeld.

What a great interview…please lend me your ears!

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!
