Ep 219: Required reading revisited

You might remember way back in Ep 60, guest Mel Joulwan and I talked about her love for books with a "strong sense of place". Mel realized she loves to travel in her literary life, and in the years since we chatted on WSIRN she’s made that the priority in big, delightful ways, along with her husband Dave Humphries. Mel and Dave are joining us today to chat about their reading journey together, fulfilling their long-time dream to move across the Atlantic, and their new destination-reading podcast aptly named Strong Sense of Place. Plus, they're recommending 3 books with great atmosphere they think I'll enjoy.

Readers, on today’s episode we’re talking about travel reading. Well I have my own travel coming up and I want to make sure you’re in the loop. My book tour for Don’t Overthink It is booked. I’m going to wonderful bookstores I’ve been to in the past and I’m excited to say we have great events planned at new and new-to-me stores and cities, including New York City, Milwaukee, and Madison CT. Don’t Overthink It is out March 3rd and in-person events start that week. Get the details at I hope to see you live and in person at one of these book tour stops this spring!
