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. 46 | Educated the The Idiot

We discuss Educated by Tara Westover and The Idiot by Elif Batuman. AND we reveal next month’s theme!

Check out our Patreon page to learn more about our book club and other Patreon-exclusive goodies. A special thanks to our patrons Amy B., Carley T., Deborah W., and Stephanie W. Follow along over on Instagram, join the discussion in our Goodreads group, and be sure to subscribe to our newsletter for more new books and extra book reviews!
