When I found out Susan Orlean's latest was called The Library Book it took me exactly 2 minutes to invite her on the show to discuss it. Bless her, she said yes less than 5 minutes later.
This book is SO GOOD.
Granted, I am an easy sell with a podcast called The Secret Library. But this book has arson, crazy characters, scandal, history, and everything a book nerd could ever want. We discuss the process of researching and writing this book over 5 years and what it took to write it, even after Susan thought she'd never write another book again.
She's pure gold, as always.
When I did 100 readings a few years ago, a friend asked if I could read for her writing project instead of her life.
We tried it out and were amazed at the results. After exploring a bit, I discovered that the very brilliant Jessa Crispin had been reading tarot for writers for years. Her book, The Creative Tarot has been a favorite ever since and I was thrilled she was open to coming on and discussing how tarot can support the writing process.
If you’ve been wondering about bringing tarot into your writing or even if you’ve never played with tarot at all, this episode is going to be such a treat! Happy listening...
