Bookish Flights is a podcast to inspire new and seasoned readers to dedicate at least 15-minutes of their day to reading through curated book flights. In each episode, I interview a bookish guest on three book pairings to help us sample and savor a variety of books. I hope these podcasts will inspire you to read more, to read something new and to get more out of your reading life.
Book Flight: Magic to Make You Think Differently (E67)
We chatted all about starting with a really good question to start
determining where to start, writing being a team sport and what she has
learned about life through moving a lot in her childhood. She also shared
how reading and writing do not occur in a vacuum and how our life
contributes. I love her book flight of “digestible books” that leave you
with an aha moment and how she refers to books as interesting currency in
A Mississippi Sisterhood of Writers with Gerry Wilson (E66)
Gerry taught us all about the literary traditions of Mississippi and her
perspective as a teacher on how we teach our children to write. Her book
flight focuses on the women writers of Mississippi, including generations
of writers. The book flight also focuses on themes of family and
motherhood. This is a delightful episode, I hope you enjoy it as well.
The Women with Kristin Hannah (E65)
In today’s episode, I am chatting with an well-loved author here at Bookish
Flights, Kristin Hannah! Tune in to hear about her latest novel, The Women.
Her book flight features books that influenced her writing. Happy
Finding Acceptance and Belonging through Books with Ainsley Billings (E64)
In today’s episode I am chatting with Ainsley Billings. Ainsley is a
first-time author, hoping to always create new worlds and characters. She
is the author of a dystopian/urban fantasy, The Offenders. We talked all
about getting vulnerable amongst the pages and what writing has done for
processing big events in her life. It is a delightful episode and one you
will not want to miss! Happy listening!
Funny and Adventurous Books from the Kids (E63)
In today’s episode, we are chatting with Jarek and his Mom, Sami. Jarek is
8, so the books shared are early chapter books or middle grade novels. Hope
you enjoy this short and sweet episode with Jarek. I’d love to hear your
thoughts on if you’d like to hear more book flights from the kids!
Epic Fantasies with Bryan Mitchell (E62)
In today’s episode, I am chatting with Bryan Mitchell. Bryan is an
award-winning author of epic fantasies living in Archdale, NC. His writing
is inspired by his Christian faith, and is filled with relevant themes that
can be identified in today's society even though they are written into
fantastical worlds. He is the author of Infernal Fall and Almost Paradise,
which just released on October 24th, 2023.
