Best Book Ever

Apr 26, 2021

I’ve been lucky enough to take several writing classes from Theodora Taylor, both in person and online. She’s changed the way I look at writing, but makes me forget I am learning because she teaches in such a warm and engaging way. I’m thrilled that I landed her for this episode, where we read an old-school romance, and then grappled with the sometimes problematic nature of our old books.
