Get Lit with All Of It
L: Little, Brown, and Co R: K. Cunningham
Join Alison Stewart, host of WNYC’s All Of It, for the next installment in their monthly book club series featuring the perennial classic Little Women. Alison will be joined by bestselling authors Kate Bolick (Spinster: Making a Life of One’s Own), and Anne Boyd Rioux (Meg, Jo, Beth, Amy: The Story of Little Women and Why It Still Matters) to discuss what has made this holiday favorite an intergenerational classic. Why do we still look at the March sisters as prototypes, and how will a new generation of readers react to the upcoming Greta Gerwig adaptation this Christmas?
Plus, a performance by Molly Burch and holiday beverages! Buy a ticket for yourself and read along with Alison and Team All Of It, or buy a table and get your whole book club to come along!
Join Alison Stewart, host of WNYC’s All of It, alongside bestselling authors and fellow book lovers on the air, online and in person for this monthly book club series. We’ll read books, share our progress on Instagram and gather for monthly evenings in The Greene Space with Alison and a marquee author. You’ll have the opportunity to spend some time with the author and ask your burning questions about the novel.
Kate Bolick‘s first book, the best-selling Spinster: Making a Life of One’s Own, was named a New York Times Notable Book of 2015. A contributing editor for The Atlantic, Bolick is also a freelance writer for The New York Times, Slate, and Vogue, among other publications. Previously, she was executive editor of Domino, and a columnist for The Boston Globe‘s Ideas Section. She teaches writing at New York University, in both the Cultural Reporting & Criticism MA program and the Gallatin School of Individualized Study, and lives in Brooklyn, New York.
Anne Boyd Rioux specializes in the recovery and reconsideration of nineteenth-century American women writers, many of whom have been forgotten or relegated to the margins. She is a professor at the University of New Orleans and has been awarded two National Endowments for the Humanities. She is the author of two previous books and editor of three more. She lives in New Orleans.
Molly Burch was exposed to the arts at an early age. Growing up in Los Angeles with a writer/producer father and a casting director mother, Burch’s childhood was filled with old Hollywood musicals and the sounds of Patsy Cline, Billie Holiday and Nina Simone. After finding her voice in adolescence, Burch packed up for the University of North Carolina in Asheville to study Jazz Vocal Performance. When she moved to Austin, she released her albums Please Be Mine, and First Flower. She is currently on tour with her latest, The Molly Burch Christmas Album.
