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. 40 | Phillis Wheatley Meets Frankenstein

This month, we’re discussing Poems on Various Subjects, Religious and Moral by Phillis Wheatley, the first published African American poet, and Mary Wollstencraft Shelley’s Frankenstein—which turns 200 this year!
