We were apart again while recording this episode. Emily was in Colorado visiting her son and daughter-in-law. She also shared part of her salad with a magpie at The Bookworm bookstore and cafe in Edward’s CO. We are so grateful for the technology that allows us to get together to talk about books from wherever we are. As for what we’re reading, Chris is nearing the end of OUTLANDER by Diana Gabaldon and Emily is reading TAKE WHAT YOU NEED by Idra Novey (release date is 3/14/2023). We both read SWEET THURSDAY by John Steinbeck and also listened to ON WRITING: A MEMOIR OF THE CRAFT by Stephen King. Chris is dipping into the Library of America edition of CONSTANCE FENIMORE WOOLSON: COLLECTED STORIES and Emily read THE SEAS by Samantha Hunt and SHAME by Annie Ernaux. In Biblio Adventures, after we recorded the last episode we realized we forgot to talk about visiting the fantastic Lenox Library in Lenox, MA! Emily attended a virtual event at the San Francisco Public Library in celebration of their One City One Book selection, THIS IS EAR HUSTLE:: Unflinching Stories of Everyday Prison Life; with Nigel Poor and Earlonne Woods, moderated by Piper Kerman author of ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK: My Year in a Women’s Prison. Meanwhile, back in Connecticut, Chris returned books to The Institute Library and then took a walk to visit Grey Matter Books and Barnes & Noble. On November 30th we are heading to Amherst, MA for the screening of the pop opera Emily & Sue at Amherst College hosted by the newly renovated Emily Dickinson Museum. We also got tickets for a tour of Dickinson’s house earlier in the day – we can’t wait to see what’s changed since our last visit. Last call to join in on our readalong discussion of MURDER ON THE RED RIVER by Marcie R. Rendon. If you would like to participate in the Zoom conversation on Sunday, December 4th at 7 PM (ET) please email us (bookcougars@gmail.com). We also have a discussion thread on our Goodreads group if you’d like to chat about the book there. AUTHOR SPOTLIGHT: We had a blast talking with author, TV writer, and lawyer Marcia Clark and Our Mystery Man, John Valeri. Marcia’s new standalone thriller, THE FALL GIRL, is out now! We both enjoyed the audio version.
