Mitchell's Book Corner & Wendy Rouillard
Nov 23, 2020 Season 1 Episode 4

Sometime around mid-March, my Earth Mother alter ego kicked in and has since gone into overdrive. Every few days, a malodorous smell wafts from the kitchen—that's the sourdough starter telling me it's ready for attention. I've lost count of how many pics of flowery-patterned loaves I've posted on Instagram. Gone are the bookish images and texts that filled my feed pre-COVID. If I can't eat it, grow it, or walk it, the image isn’t getting posted. I'm not saying my bibliophile persona has gone AWOL. Instead, I'm on a rereading binge; a compulsive need to be comforted by characters dear to my heart and familiar faraway lands. 

This episode took me to Nantucket, Massachusetts, a place I’d love to visit. I chat with Wendy Morton, owner of Mitchell’s Book Corner, and local children’s author and illustrator, Wendy Rouillard.
