This week, I spoke about the genre of autobiographies on The Homestretch. I like to shake things up every once in awhile, so I chose two VERY different books to talk about. The first made me cry, literally. The second made me laugh because its numerous Beyonce references were fabulous. A Mother’s Reckoning by Sue Klebold, and Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes couldn’t be anymore different from each other, but surprisingly, both dealt with the very serious issue of mental health, so they were a fitting but unlikely pair.

If you listen to the clip all the way through, you’ll also notice that I’ve accepted the very generous offer from the CBC to come on all year round to talk books. So, I’ll be on once a month to chat about what I’m reading with all the wonderful Homestretch listeners, and I’ll be sure to share those conversations here on my blog so you can ‘tune in’ even if you don’t live in Calgary.
