Episode 28: Birthday books, literary crushes, and the joys of rereading with Alex Messina-Schultheis Shaped by Stories

    • Society & Culture

This episode I chat with children's book editor Alex Messina-Schultheis about some of the books that are most important to her. We cover the sweetest birthday books ever, a myriad of literary crushes, and pulling her first reading all nighter.

If you’re subscribed to the podcast, you may have noticed a lengthy hiatus — putting together a podcast takes a lot of time and with 2020 being what it was, I needed that break. But I’m excited to be back with a new episode and hope to keep new episodes coming in 2021. However, I’m taking a relaxed approach to producing and publishing the podcast, so staying subscribed in your podcast app of choice is the best way to know when a new episode is out!
