Janet Skeslien Charles

On this episode, Patti Callahan Henry & Kristin Harmel welcome the New York Times and internationally bestselling author, Janet Skeslien Charles, to discuss her brilliant new novel, MISS MORGAN’S BOOK BRIGADE, based on the true story of Jessie Carson, the American librarian who changed the literary landscape of France. Janet has spent the past decade researching Jessie Carson at The Morgan Library, the NYPL, and archives across France for her latest novel MISS MORGAN’S BOOK BRIGADE. The result is a “compelling ode to the astonishing power of libraries and librarians” (Marie Benedict) which our own Patti Callahan Henry calls “an astonishing novel…and a moving tale of sacrifice, heroism, and inspired storytelling.” Janet’s previous novel The Paris Library, was an instant New York Times, Washington Post, and USA TODAY bestseller and named an Amazon Best Book of 2021. We are so looking forward to discussing this latest installment in her library trilogy with Janet as she heads back to the States from her home in Paris to embark on a US book tour.
