If you missed my conversation with Cathleen Schine at Book Passage’s ”Extended Sessions,” you can watch it at your leisure. Such a pleasure speaking with Cathleen! And responding to questions submitted by readers who attended. Enjoy! https://t.co/0ceTwwFkGf

Olive, Again by Elizabeth Strout
Prickly, wry, honest, and empathetic Olive Kitteridge returns. 
“Just as wonderful as the original . . . Olive, Again poignantly reminds us that empathy, a requirement for love, helps make life ‘not unhappy.’”—NPR https://t.co/QkjqsnYKJH https://t.co/ghNFU6MZ4W

We love that @LizStrout recommends "Savage Beauty: The Life of Edna St Vincent Millay" by Nancy Milford in her list for @guardian. "I am impressed that the child knew intuitively what to do to survive." On my radar: Elizabeth Strout's cultural highlights https://t.co/8UnSLdbCyM

The paperback edition of OLIVE, AGAIN comes out tomorrow … because nothing stops Olive! Here are a few things I've been looking at, listening to, and doing these past months during the pandemic for comfort, entertainment, and even a little joy. https://t.co/jQL6dfI7IW

Storytelling at its finest: @LizStrout reads "Rose Wept," a masterpiece of a short story by Irish author William Trevor. Perfect for a Sunday afternoon. Listen: https://t.co/qftFLJR10S

Delighted to read this lovely William Trevor short story for the 92nd Street Y's "Read By" podcast! https://t.co/FevU9CIoTf

No one observes the beauty of ordinary lives quite as astutely as @LizStrout (Olive, Again). The master storyteller sits down to discuss her career, her craft, and what compelled her to revisit Olive after all these years on Sat 15 Aug. With @katetorney. https://t.co/omESfMA0IP https://t.co/jzLtXKkGR4

With so much terrible news the past two months, I'm only seeing this lovely photo now. Laura Linney was and is a marvel… Thank you, @LucyACarson! Yes, the show was an incredible ride. And life is even more so. Be well — and to all my readers too. https://t.co/RN4eXTJPMO

When we asked you what you were reading in lockdown, so many of you were raving about @lizstrout that we thought we’d dig out a lovely chat @janegarvey1 had with her last year. A must listen for fans of Olive Kitteridge: https://t.co/rHCHQlHBMf https://t.co/JHBgVFjNc9
