Pausing to @WalkIntoABook w/Miranda K. Pennington — #KatieSpeakShow Ep90 05/27/2017
1 day ago
In brief: Miranda K. Pennington is one of my favorite people, so it’s no wonder that her newly released memoir “A Girl Walks Into A Book: What the Brontes Taught Me About life, Love and Women’s Work” is one of my favorites of the year. In our extended chat, we talk about the role literature has played in our lives, female friendship, how the nature of "women’s work” has (and hasn’t) changed, mental health stigma, non-traditional dating, and more!
