Middlemarch and a March book selection
and a class TONIGHT
It’s been awhile since we’ve seen you in your inbox. We hope you’re reading something great, taking time to rest, and letting yourself enjoy the simple things these days.
We’re in the thick of postpartum-no sleep-baby smiles-board books-and finding our way back to ourselves, and to the podcast. It’s a joyful, challenging, and wild time. We’re so grateful for all of your support as we navigate podcasting and parenthood!
We have announcements and upcoming events to share:
TONIGHT we’re teaching Romance 101: a class all about the romance genre for romance readers and skeptics alike! It’s going to be such a fun class, with TONS of book recs, and we’d love to see you there. To join, go to patreon.com/novelpairings and sign up at the $8 Literary Scholar level. We record our classes, so if you can’t make it live, you’ll be able to watch the replay on your own time.
LATER THIS MONTH we’re discussing Middlemarch by George Eliot on the podcast and with our Literary Scholars (2/26 @ 1 pm ET)! Have you been reading along? We’re debuting a new episode format. Part 1 of the discussion will cover the book: characters, themes, history, and other important things to know whether you read it or hope to read it soon. Part 2 will cover pairings and connections to modern literature.
We’re excited to be back. Thank you for your patience as we sort out our schedules and work around our totally new lives with the little ones! You’re the best.
