As I mentioned last week, starting this month there will be two Book Club Girl On Air Book Club Shows in which we'll talk to acclaimed authors, in a book club setting. Next up this month is Elizabeth Noble on February 17th, discussing Things I Want My Daughters to Know. Following that show, I am honored to announce that internationally bestselling author Isabel Allende will join us on February 25th at 7 pm EST to discuss her most recent memoir, just out in paperback, The Sum of Our Days.
In The Sum of Our Days, Allende reconstructs the painful reality of her own life in the wake of the tragic death of her daughter, Paula. Narrated with warmth, humor, exceptional candor, and wisdom, this remarkable memoir is as exuberant and full of life as its creator. Allende bares her soul as she shares her thoughts on love, marriage, motherhood, spirituality and religion, infidelity, addiction, and memory—and recounts stories of the wildly eccentric, strong-minded, and eclectic tribe she gathers around her and lovingly embraces as a new kind of family.
The first 15 people to comment here will receive a copy of The Sum of Our Days to read in preparation for our discussion with her on the 25th. Browse inside the book here, and set your reminder for the show here.
