About Us

We’re three babes from New York, Rebecca, Elizabeth, and Sarah, who like to talk books & drink beers. Several years ago we met in a local book club. After each meeting, we found ourselves staying late to talk literature over a few drinks. This podcast is our way of opening our discussions to you!
