Megan Griswold and Gingerbread

May 6, 2019 - Abbe recaps Gingerbread by Helen Oyeyemi, Emma talks to Megan Griswold about her memoir, The Book of Help, and Abbe hears from Michael C. Reichert, Ph.D., about his book, How to Raise a Boy.

In this episode, Abbe tells us about the fairytale-inspired book she’s been reading: Gingerbread by Helen Oyeyemi.

Then, our book correspondent, Emma, sits down with Megan Griswold about her memoir, The Book of Help, which follows her quest for alternative remedies to the pain and problems she’s experiencing.

One thing I like to do is put words to difficult experiences and do it in a way that's relatable and makes others feel a little less alone in their difficulties.
—Megan Griswold

Finally, Abbe chats with psychologist, author, and founding director of the Center for the Study of Boys’ and Girls’ Lives at the University of Pennsylvania, Michael C. Reichert, Ph.D., about his new work, How to Raise a Boy.
