Emma Black - You're Booked

As a little bonus treat, we are delighted to present this glorious, nourishing conversation with the fantastic Emma Black! Emma is a hugely talented opera director, veracious reader and winner of the You're Booked auction, raising funds for Book Fuel. Emma talks about her early fascination with Anne of Green Gables, a terrible crime committed to a copy of In Cold Blood in a New Zealand youth hostel, loving Meg Wolitzer, Katherine Heiny and Curtis Sittenfeld and the books she's looking forward to next year (and much more!)
