Holiday special!

I’m back from hiatus to share with you this sweet and joy-filled Holiday special episode, which I recorded with my mom Kathy and my cousin Whitney!

We planned to just “shoot the shit,” as they say, about topics like books and reading, family and parenting, and the holidays. And shoot the shit we did, indeed! 😀

Listen in if you’d like to hear us share some warm memories, reflect on “raising a reader,” and talk about books & family bonding, authorship & identity, Harry Potter, Little House on the Prairie, The Black Stallion (my mom’s favourite book growing up, and I never knew??!!), and more! As Whitney says in our chat, this episode is a bit of a love note. <3
