What Books Changed Your Life?

Bethanne PatrickBethanne Patrick reads, and she writes and speaks about books.  She is the founder of the hashtag #FridayReads, which I am definitely going to ask her about.  She had a 4 year run with "The Book Studio" on a PBS Station in Washington, moderated Barnes & Noble's first on-line book club, and her author interviews have been widely published.

Books that Changed my LifeThis week on Writers' Voices, Patrick will be discussing her third book, "The Books That Changed My Life: Reflections by 100 Authors, Actors, Musicians and Other Remarkable People."  These essays by such literary and cultural lights as Margaret Atwood, Mayim Bialik, and Fran Lebowitz gave me a whole new list of Must-Reads.  I was especially delighted to find no less than four former Writers' Voices guests included - Susan Orlean, John Scalzi, Meg Wolitzer and Luis Urrea.
