Very excited to have Martha Wainwright on the show this week. She’s known as a musician and for her musical family (her mother Kate McGarrigle, her father Loudon Wainwright III, and of course her brother Rufus). Her memoir, Stories I Might Regret Telling You, is a excellent read. Check out our conversation.
E223 with KELLY S. THOMPSON
Hey everyone. I ‘ve been pretty sparse with the personal notes on this blog, haven’t I? Is it really a blog, or just a repository for links to Get Lit? (Answer: the latter, but that’s OK). I will say that I do have news of my own to announce. Vague, distant news, but news nonetheless. I am also working on a new novel…but isn’t everyone?
Today’s guest is Kelly S. Thompson. Her memoir Girls Need Not Apply is a compelling look at her years in the Canadian military. We had a great talk and I hope you enjoy both the book and the show!
Fun fact: if you’re checking it out on release day (Thursday, in this case the 25th of February) Kelly will be hosting the book launch for Hamilton’s Brent Van Staaduinen. Tonight!
