Reading Women

Reading Women releases new episodes every Wednesday. Each month features two episodes on the same theme—one highlighting a range of titles and one discussing two titles more in depth—and two author interviews with women writers whose work we’ve loved.

Ep. 12.5 | The Other Einstein and Other Almost Famous Women

A bonus Wednesday in the month means a bonus episode from the Reading Women! This time, we’re discussing THE OTHER EINSTEIN and other books in the “wives of famous people” sub-genre.
