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.

Interview with Chloe Benjamin

Autumn and Kendra chat with Chloe Benjamin about her latest novel, The Immortalists. They discuss the inspiration for The Immortalists, living life vs. merely surviving, and the nature of fate.
