The Waterstones Podcast - Friendship
Your chance to hear authors going beyond the book to talk about the themes and ideas that obsess us all.
Will, Dan and Holly talk about friendship, with book recommendations coming straight away from Holly, who loves Expectation by Anna Hope. Dan talks about a Waterstones event for Empathy Day and how reading, empathy and friendship are all connected. We get to hear from Waterstones Children’s Book Prize-winner Angie Thomas talking about friendship in the wake of her huge success with The Hate U Give. Tash Aw talks about how his international life puts a huge pressure on friendship and why it requires work to succeed. And to finish off we drop into an event featuring Yomi Adegoke and Elizabeth Uviebinene, authors of Slay In Your Lane. The two best friends talk about how their book began and how their friendship helped them to share more of themselves through it.
