Welcome to Listen Together: Libro.fm Audiobook Club! Meet our host, author, narrator, and get your Listening Schedule for May.
Meet the Host: Jamie Miller
Jamie Miller is a thirty-something book lover and book club addict who has been blabbing excitedly about books on the internet since 2010 via her blog, The Perpetual Page-Turner, as well as on Instagram @perpetualpageturner.
When she’s not doing that, you can find her wrangling a book-loving toddler and a quirky rescue dog, crying way too much about fictional character in books or on TV, and brewery hopping with her husband. She reads just about anything—from a YA fantasy bouncing right to a literary family drama to a steamy romance to a nail-biting thriller.
Her favorite independent bookstore? Children’s Book World in Haverford, Pennsylvania.
Audiobook Pick: These Ghosts are Family by Maisy Card
A transporting debut novel that reveals the ways in which a Jamaican family forms and fractures over generations, in the tradition of Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi.
