Better Than The Movie

...because the book normally is!

Better Than The Movie is a podcast for people who love reading diversely, books, book news, and issues related to literacy and popular culture. Our goal is to review and discuss book themes with passion and an open mind. We want to encourage our readers to look beyond the best sellers lists and  discover new voices and stories. 

We are The Readers, the people who the publishing world should be catering to, but oftentimes  don't . We are smart. We are funny. We are sometimes a little snarky. And we always, ALWAYS, think that the book is better than the movie


EPISODE NINETEEN: Red Lip, Classic...

I'm sorry for the titular reference. : ) This week we start with a brief fangirl moment because someone (read: Jeanette) is excited about something so not literary! The conversation continues with a recap of a recent reading/signing of Balm by Dolen Perkins-Valdez and a brief discussion on what it means to be "well read" before we dive right into our main topic du jour, classic literature. As per the usual, our takes on what is considered to be classic may vary from what you'd normally see in the NYT. Finally, we wrap up with a new segment, "5 Questions With..." featuring bestselling author of The Girl Who Fell From the Sky, Heidi Durrow!
