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 Kalisha Buckhanon

Autumn and Kendra talk with Kalisha Buckhanon about her new novel Speaking of Summer, which is out now from Counterpoint.
