Conroy Center & Jonathan Haupt with Lauren Marino, author of Bookish Broads

Authors On The Air Radio

The Pat Conroy Literary Center and the Authors on the Air Global Radio Network proudly present executive director Jonathan Haupt in conversation with award-winning writer and editor Lauren Marino, author of Bookish Broads: Women Who Wrote Themselves into History.Women have written some of our most extraordinary literary works while living in societies and cultures that tried to silence them. These women dared to put pen to paper to express the multifaceted female experience. In Bookish Broads, Lauren Marino celebrates fierce, trailblazing female writers, reworking the literary canon that has long failed to recognize the immense contributions of women. Featuring more than 50 brilliant bookish broads, Marino cleverly illuminates the lives of the greats as well as the literary talents history has wrongfully overlooked. Each intimate portrait delves into one woman’s works and is accompanied by vibrant illustrations depicting each literary legend in her element and time.“In telling the stories of this pantheon of influential women, Lauren Marino empowers burgeoning writers to follow their own creative yearnings and calls upon readers to honor those who have come before us. Each of these life stories is different, affirming that writers and artists can come from everywhere.... Bookish Broads illuminates the transformative legacy of women writers and invites us to join a story still unfolding."--Charleston Post and CourierGUEST: Lauren Marino is the author of What Would Dolly Do? and Jackie and Cassini. The founding editor of Gotham Books, she has published multiple bestsellers and award-winning books.HOST: Jonathan Haupt is the executive director of the Pat Conroy Literary Center and coeditor of Our Prince of Scribes.

Conroy Center & Jonathan Haupt with NYT Bestselling Author Jason Mott

Authors On The Air Radio

The Pat Conroy Literary Center and the Authors on the Air Global Radio Network proudly present executive director Jonathan Haupt in conversation with novelist Jason Mott, author of Hell of a Book.In Hell of a Book, an African-American author sets out on a cross-country book tour to promote his bestselling novel. That storyline drives Jason Mott's novel and is the scaffolding of something much larger and more urgent: since his novel also tells the story of Soot, a young Black boy living in a rural town in the recent past, and The Kid, a possibly imaginary child who appears to the author on his tour. Throughout, these characters' stories build and build and as they converge, they astonish. Unforgettably powerful, an electrifying high-wire act, ideal for book clubs, and the book Mott says he has been writing in his head for ten years, Hell of a Book in its final twists truly becomes its title."Hell of a Book more than lives up to its title. Playful, searching, raw and necessary, this writing, this voice, this novel twisted me up and turned me inside out, dazzled me, surprised me and moved me."—Charles Yu, author of Interior ChinatownGUEST: Jason Mott has published three previous novels. His first novel, The Returned, was a New York Times bestseller and was turned into a TV series that ran for two seasons. He has a BFA in Fiction and an MFA in Poetry, both from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. His poetry and fiction have appeared in various literary journals.HOST: Jonathan Haupt is the executive director of the Pat Conroy Literary Center and co-editor of Our Prince of Scribes: Writers Remember Pat Conroy.  www.patconroyliterarycenter.org
