As soon as we heard about her new release, Book Girl: A Journey through the Treasures and Transforming Power of a Reading Life, we knew that we needed to have a conversation with kindred spirit, Sarah Clarkson.
Sarah is a writer, wife, mom to her own wee book girl, and student of theology. She blogs at sarahclarkson.com and studies at Oxford. In this episode we chatted across the pond about being formed by stories, how books reach out to us when we need them most, and how good characters show us we can make our own paths. So grab a cup of tea and join us!
