Do you ever wonder what it would be like to open a bookstore? Or what it’s like to edit iconic authors? Or what, exactly, bibliotherapy is and how you can sign up? We do too! Book Dreams is a podcast for everyone who loves books and has ever wondered about them. In each episode, authors Julie Sternberg and Eve Yohalem seek answers to the book-related questions that we can’t stop dreaming about. We hope you’ll send us your book dreams, too—the questions about books that you want us to explore.
