The series you loved, book by book. Join Allison Horrocks and Mary Mahoney as they explore the wild world of American Girl fandom. In each episode, Allison and Mary will dive into an American Girl book from their (and perhaps your) childhood. Using their knowledge as professional historians and finely tuned instincts as amateur pop culture critics, they’ll take you back to a very different time—the 1990s. Visit our site to learn more.
I produce and host an interview podcast called Chapters which tells the stories of readers’ lives through the books that have meant the most to them. We produce a new episode every other week, and interview guests ranging from well-known authors, musicians and public figures to readers who reach out to us with stories they want to share about meaningful interactions with books (loosely defined) that have been significant in their lives. This reflects a core belief driving the show that every person’s story matters. We’ve heard stories about: Ernest Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea and what it taught one reader about adoption; a reader’s lifelong love of romance novels; reading the bible in a religious family and what it means to grow away from that; reading and past lives, and more.
