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. 61 | Australia and the Surrounding Archipelago

For March, Jaclyn and Kendra, with special guest Winnie Loo, talk about women writers from Australia and the surrounding archipelago! Find a full version of the show for this episode on our website.
