”I Did It All In My Pajamas” with Jean Hanff Korelitz and Emma Straub

Jean Hanff Korelitz is the New York Times bestselling author of nine novels including The Latecomer, The Plot, You Should Have Known (which aired on HBO as The Undoing, starring Nicole Kidman, and Hugh Grant) and Admission (adapted as a film in 2013 starring Tina Fey), The Devil and Webster, The White Rose, and Interference Powder, a novel for children. Her company BOOKTHEWRITER hosts Pop-Up Book Groups in which small groups of readers discuss new books with their authors. 

Emma Straub is the New York Times-bestselling author of five novels - This Time Tomorrow, All Adults Here, The Vacationers, Modern Lovers, Laura Lamont's Life in Pictures - and the short story collection Other People We Married. Her books have been published in more than 20 languages, and All Adults Here is currently in development as a television series. She and her husband own Books Are Magic, an independent bookstore in Brooklyn, New York. 

These Manhattan natives share their love of all things New York (especially the Museum of Natural History), the pleasure of incorporating childhood nostalgia into their novels and how opening a bookstore may be harder than writing.
