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. 24 | The Weight of the Essex Serpent

Reading Women continues its birthday celebrations with the second of two anniversary episodes. Today Autumn and Kendra discuss The Essex Serpent by Sarah Perry and The Weight of Him by Ethel Rohan.
