Ep 15: The audacity to tell people what to read

Anne chats with Marybeth Whalen and Ariel Lawhon of, an online reading site and book club for women. Under Marybeth and Ariel's leadership, She Reads does a terrific job of highlighting excellent titles you've never heard of. 

These women are writers as well as curators and reviewers: Ariel is the author of Flight of Dreams and The Wife, the Maid, and the MistressMarybeth is the author of The Things We Wish Were True.

This is a special episode: it's WSIRN's first freewheeling conversation about book recommendations and the reading life. Anne talks with Marybeth and Ariel about how they became a go-to book resource for thousands of readers, why you have to be a little bossy to recommend books (and why Marybeth and Ariel are overqualified for the job), and how they keep reading FUN even when—and especially when—it's a job.
