Episode 7: In which Jessica Turner is a Special Guest Co-host
Meredith is on vacation, so Kaytee has a special guest co-host join her for this week’s episode. She is so excited to share her conversation with Jessica Turner!
You’ll hear a “bookish moment of the week” from each of us: one that only a family of two authors will ever experience and a new discovery at the library that made for a quiet weekend at home.
We dive in to discussing 2 books each. One of which we both cannot stop talking about.
Next, we get to discuss Jessica’s new book, Stretched Too Thin, as well as her previous work, The Fringe Hours. Both are books you need on your shelves! Who wants to win a copy of STT? I’ll be giving away a copy on Instagram this week, so pop on over there to enter!
We finish up with A Book (yep, capitalized) that we’d like to put into every reader’s hands. Jessica does a great job pushing BOTH of our books into your hands this week, as I promise you’ll want to pick up each of them for totally different reasons. They also kind of follow a theme (unintentionally, as usual!).
