Ep 427: The collaborative act of reading

Connecting with authors is always a treat, and today we’re bringing you a recent conversation between Anne and author Thao Thai. Thao joined us in the Modern Mrs Darcy Book Club last year to discuss her debut novel Banyan Moon, a juicy family drama that explores what makes a home, the secrets we keep, inheritance and immigrant stories, and so much more.

In today’s episode, Thao and Anne talk about how this unique story came to be and the story behind the book’s striking cover, and Thao answers a variety of questions from our Book Club members. We also hear about Thao’s forthcoming rom-com, Adam & Evie’s Matchmaking Tour—which she is releasing under the pen name Nora Nyguen.

Whether or not you’ve read Banyan Moon, we think you’ll love listening in to today’s spoiler-free conversation, which we’ve lightly edited from the original live Book Club Event.
