If the word “biography” doesn’t fill you with excitement, maybe today’s guest Tracie Haddock’s enthusiasm can convince you to give them another shot. She even calls one famous biographer her “adopted grandfather”—although what she’s REALLY looking for are great biographies about amazing women, because she just hasn’t found enough out there.

In this episode, Anne and Tracie discuss books about extraordinary people living during fascinating times, whether or not to be stingy with star ratings, unreliable NON-fiction authors, books so engrossing they’ve made Tracie’s family fend for themselves at dinnertime, and much much more.
