One of Roxanne’s favorite authors, Elizabeth Strout joins Just the Right Book Podcast to talk about her latest novel, Anything is Possible. The Pulitzer Prize-winning author also gives us the scoop on the Emmy Award-winning HBO series, Olive Kitteridge (based on Strout’s book of the same name) and shares her thoughts on Frances McDormand as the title character. “You read Strout, really for the same reason you listen to a requiem: to experience the beauty in sadness,” says Jennifer Senior of the New York Times.
We also talk to our first JTRB book club winner, Kim Nelson-Layman, who got a special surprise when she heard who else was on the phone with Roxanne.
