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. 66 | The Mango Bride and The Astonishing Color of After

For our month for Asian Pacific Islander Month, Kendra, Sachi, and special guest Fran discuss The Astonishing Color of After by Emily X.R. Pan and The Mango Bride by Marivi Soliven. Find the full show notes for this episode over on our website.
