Mary Shelley (1797-1851) was the calm in the eye of the storm that was literally everyone in her life: her parents, her stepmother, her stepsister, her husband, her husband's BFF, literally EVERYONE was the most chaotic and she somehow stands out for just keeping it together all these years. She was the ultimate Goth Queen Mom Friend, casually invented a whole new genre of fiction/revolutionized English language literature while on the world's worst couples getaway and while dealing with perpetual pregnancy and grief. To say we stan is an understatement.

"Everything was alive in the moment, which was an interesting process because I could see how my voice was changed by the experience." Alena Dillon returns to talk about her latest non-fiction book, My Body Is a Big Fat Temple, which chronicles her pregnancy and looks at the parts of motherhood that often get brushed aside. Alena and Zibby also discuss how although the reward of pregnancy is always worth it, it does a disservice to everyone when we ignore the hard conversations and hefty costs it puts on mothers.Purchase on Amazon or Bookshop.Amazon: https://amzn.to/3AQLyADBookshop: https://bit.ly/3lDWixx See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

We're delighted to bring you an exclusive reading from the timely and arresting debut novel, In Every Mirror She's Black. Three Black women are linked in unexpected ways to the same influential white man in Stockholm, as they build their new lives in the most open society, run by the most private people. This multi perspective story is told through the lives of Kemi, a successful marketing exec, Brittany-Rae, a former model turned flight attendant, and Muna, a refugee establishing her residency in Sweden. Their stories touch on important social issues surrounding racism, classism, fetishisation, and tokenism, exploring how each of these women uniquely navigates white-dominated society. “Beautifully complex and deftly drawn… a sexy, surprising, searing debut about love, loss, desire, and the many dimensions of Black womanhood.”—Deesha Philyaw Lọlá Ákínmádé Åkerström's In Every Mirror She's Black is published by Head of Zeus and available now. We recommend buying from your local indie or you can grab a copy from our shop at Bookshop.org Podcast produced and edited by Megan Bay Dorman Learn more about your ad choices.

Victoria also tells Zibby about why she enjoys getting feedback from kids much more than from adults as well as how some things have changed for her over the past fifteen years as a result of her books.Purchase on Amazon or Bookshop.Amazon: https://amzn.to/3CRS8rmBookshop: https://bit.ly/3EVvvE4 See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

This week Skye & Amanda read a Psychology Today article by Juliana Breines, “Self-Compassion vs. Letting Yourself Off the Hook”. The two define self compassion and discuss where they were with it prior to reading. They open up about what areas they see that they can make improvements with how much grace they give themselves. Together the ladies run through the four questions that Breines suggests we ask ourselves if we're unsure whether we are being genuinely self compassionate or just letting ourselves off easy.Skye talks about how hearing and receiving what other people think of her has positively impacted how she sees herself. Amanda talks about how she's bringing self compassion into her career and what grief has taught her about common humanity.

Senator Elizabeth Warren joins Zibby to discuss her thirteenth book, Pinkie Promises. Senator Warren shares how her tradition of pinkie promising young girls and women inspired the story's premise, why it was important for her to focus on her protagonist's efforts rather than results, and the picture book's secret second plot that will entertain young readers no matter how many times they read it.Purchase on Amazon or Bookshop.Amazon: https://amzn.to/2XX7EU3Bookshop: https://bit.ly/2Y8m9UR See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Professor and author Jesse Thistle joins Zibby to talk about his bestselling memoir, From the Ashes. Jesse shares how different the overwhelmingly positive reception of his life story has been from the way he used to be perceived, how he believes indigenous people can begin to heal centuries of generational trauma, and what he plans to do next. Jesse also asks listeners to do two simple things in his honor: "Go buy a homeless person or someone down on their luck a meal. Ask them their name."Purchase on Amazon or Bookshop.Amazon: https://amzn.to/3oi9qtHBookshop: https://bit.ly/2WmSpmw See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
