Episode 39

Dr. Uzma Jafri is funny, fearless, and exactly the kind of bookish friend I want to sit with at a coffee shop to chat all day about books and life. I had so much fun talking to her about why “Little Women” is the Best Book. Wait until you hear the story about her dad. I’m still not over it.
