Three words: Cancel your plans. We’re inviting all NPR fans to nerd out with Sam Sanders & Friends on Saturday, October 12.

Join host Sam Sanders of NPR’s It’s Been a Minute podcast for a fun and illuminating conversation with Pop Culture Happy Hour’s Linda Holmes and NPR correspondent Aarti Shahani about their newly published books and the experience of first-time authorship.

Released in June 2019, Linda Holmes’ debut novel “Evvie Drake Starts Over” quickly rose to become a New York Times bestseller. The “effortlessly enjoyable” and “pitch perfect” (USA Today) story about the unlikely relationship between two lost souls has already charmed audiences across the country.

Aarti Shahani’s brand-new memoir “Here We Are: American Dreams, American Nightmares” hit the shelves on October 1, offering a moving and deeply personal account of her family’s journey from India to Queens, NY. Already earning acclaim from critics, Publisher’s Weekly promises “this timely, bittersweet immigration story will resonate powerfully with readers.”
