Guest host Julie Chavez interviews award-winning author and repeat MDHTTRB guest Corie Adjmi about The Marriage Box, a fascinating coming-of-age novel about a young Jewish Syrian girl whose family moves back to the Orthodox community, forcing her to reckon with new customs–like getting married at 18! After revealing the story was inspired by her own life experiences, Corie describes the baby steps she took over twenty years to get this book out into the world. The two also discuss the “marriage box”, teenagers, music, and perfectionism.
