The Sunday Salon is a podcast celebrating brilliant books and the women who write them, hosted by journalist Alice-Azania Jarvis. Each week she chats to an inspiring female author about her work, her career, how she writes, what she reads and everything in between. This is not some academic textual analysis – it’s about finding the stories behind the stories, and celebrating the joy that books bring, no matter what genre, or style. Tune in each Sunday to hear from guests including How Do You Like Me Now author Holly Bourne, Ordinary People’s Diana Evans, The Reading Cure’s Laura Freeman, and Nell Stevens, author of Mrs Gaskell and Me. Edited by Chelsey Moore.
