We were so very honored when Jennifer Entwistle and Vicki Hendrickson invited Books on the Nightstand to be part of the Newburyport (MA) Literary Festival! It was a wonderful day full of author talks and book signings. Our live Books on the Nightstand session took place in a stunningly gorgeous old church, with a crowd of about 75 people in attendance -- intimidating to be sure. Jennifer moderated our discussion and did a fantastic job! And since technology was on our side, we were able to record the episode, presented here. It runs about an hour, including a Q&A session at the end.
Michael and I each talk about some of our favorite recommendations for book clubs:
Lastly, some questions from the audience, which we attempt to answer. Please note that the audience members' questions cannot be heard on the podcast recording, but we've tried to repeat the question so that it's clear.
