Roxanne Coady

Roxanne Coady is bringing her passion for books and her relationships with authors and publishers to podcasting with the launch of “Just The Right Book Podcast.” She is owner of R.J. Julia, one of the leading independent booksellers in the United States, and founder of Just the Right Book, the largest online personalized book-of-the-month subscription service. Authors of every genre choose R.J. Julia as the place to begin their publicity tours, and the store was named best independent bookstore by Publishers Weekly magazine. Since 1990, it has become a community resource not only for books, but also for the exchange of ideas.

Coady is committed to the idea that every child must be exposed to language and reading from birth. In 1998, she founded Read To Grow, Inc., which promotes development of early literacy and language skills, working to give all Connecticut children tools for success in reading. Read To Grow provides books for newborns and children and encourages parents to read to their children from birth. RTG has distributed over 1.5 million books.

Coady is sought frequently for her opinion on the latest books. She appears periodically on the Today Show and Good Morning America. With Just the Right Book Podcast, she helps you discover new books and your next read in all genres, give you unique insights into your favorite authors, and bring you up to date with what’s happening in the literary world.
