Bestselling, acclaimed writer, and NPR favorite, SANDRA TSING LOH, reads from her new book, THE MADWOMAN AND THE ROOMBA: MY YEAR OF DOMESTIC MAYHEM
“Reads like a weekend away with the best friend you ever had―blazingly vulnerable, scorchingly smart, and funny as hell.”- Cheryl Strayed.
“[Reading this book] I laughed maniacally, nodded in empathy, hooted, teared up, and laughed some more.”- Mary Roach, author of Gulp

Acclaimed novelist, JAMIE BRENNER, reads from her new book, SUMMER LONGINGS
“Summer book lovers: start your engines and put this at the top of your Beach Reads list.”―Barnes & Noble Reads
“An engaging and emotional read with characters who stay with you, this is a good fit for fans of Elin Hilderbrand.”―Booklist
“A gem….The perfect read to get you in a summer state of mind”―Popsugar

Critically-acclaimed, New York Times bestselling writer, SARAH BLAKE, reads from her instant New York Times bestselling novel,
THE GUEST BOOK. “Monumental in a way few novels dare attempt.” – The Washington Post  “Thought-provoking and propulsive…Welcome to old money, new heartbreak, big secrets, and the kind of mouthwatering picnics nobody packs in real life (boiled eggs, tin of sandwiches, bottles of gin). But the North Star of Sarah Blake’s The Guest Book isn’t the Milton family―although they are fascinating, even the ghosts―it’s the Maine island cottage where they spend their summers.” ―The New York Times Book Review

Produced by DeLauné Michel
