In each episode of Book Dreams, hosts Julie Sternberg and Eve Yohalem seek answers to the book-related questions that they can’t stop dreaming about, like how to open a bookstore, what it’s like to edit iconic authors, and what exactly bibliotherapy is. Previous and upcoming episodes feature guests like Adrienne Maree Brown, Edith Eger, Simon Winchester, David Levithan, Nancy Pearl and Jeff Schwager, and Kristen Meinzer and Jolenta Greenberg, plus experts in topics ranging from illuminated manuscripts to book design to using AI to write a bestseller.
In this episode, Julie and Eve talk to Bryan Washington, the author of Lot: Stories, one of President Obama’s Favorite Books of 2019, and Memorial, a New York Times Notable Book of 2020, about how the cookbooks, foreign films, and family storytellers of his youth helped form him as a writer. Listen to Book Dreams on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and everywhere podcasts are available.
