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 Soraya Chemaly

Autumn and Kendra talk with Soraya Chemaly about her new book Rage Becomes Her: The Power of Women’s Anger. A full version of the show notes for this episode can be found over on our website.
