It's a Book Club Girl On Air bonanza these days, I think we have a show nearly every week for the next few weeks. I'm so pleased to announce that our guest on Monday, April 12th will be Zoe Fishman, whose debut novel Balancing Acts, is just on sale now.
Balancing Acts is a poignant debut novel about the transformative powers of yoga and friendship for four women on the verge of realizing their dreams. With beauty, brains, and a high-paying Wall Street position, Charlie was a woman who seemed to have it all—until she turned thirty and took stock of her life, or lack thereof. She left it all behind to pursue yoga, and now, two years later, she's looking to drum up business for her fledgling studio in Brooklyn. Attending her college's alumni night with fliers in tow, she reconnects with three former classmates whose post-graduation lives, like hers, haven't turned out like they'd hoped.
Romance book editor Sabine still longs to write the novel that's bottled up inside her. Once an up-and-coming photographer and Upper East Side social darling, Naomi is now a single mom who hasn't picked up her camera in years. And Bess, who dreamed of being a serious investigative journalist a la Christiane Amanpour, is stuck in a rut, writing snarky captions for a gossip mag. But at a weekly yoga class at Charlie's studio, the four friends, reunited ten years after college, will forge new bonds and take new chances—as they start over, fall in love, change their lives...and come face-to-face with haunting realities.
The first ten people who comment that they'd like to participate in the show on April 12th at 7pm ET will receive a copy of the book to read in preparation! Set your reminder for the show here.
