Lisa Taddeo, the Author of our August Book Club Pick—Three Women—joins us to share how the book got made. She talked to us about how she found the three women profiled (and the hundreds of others that didn't make the cut), how the book has exceeded her expectations, and what's next for her (hint: there's a TV adaptation in the works).
