Best Book Ever

Jun 26, 2023

Today I've got my first "three-peat" guest, Marion Hill. Just like in our two previous conversations, Marion introduced me to a book that I wouldn't have picked up on my own, that I sort of dreaded reading, and that I wound up loving and thinking about nonstop after I finished!


Host: Julie Strauss



Guest: Marion Hill
