Glennon Doyle’s 6 Favorite Audiobooks

Glennon Doyle is many things: author, activist, speaker, and thought leader, as well as the founder and president of Together Rising, an all-women led nonprofit organization that has revolutionized grassroots philanthropy. She also happens to be this year’s Independent Bookstore Day Author Ambassador! In celebration of the big day (April 24th*, if your calendar isn’t already marked), we asked Glennon to share her favorite audiobooks with us.

“I have been to one million independent bookstores. I have met the booksellers who founded them and own them. I have fallen in love with them. Zero jerks own independent bookstores. They just don’t. They are—always—people who believe in and deeply invest in communities and art and ideas. And during this pandemic, in which we have lost one local indie per week, we need to prioritize investing in these local businesses who invest so much in us.”
