On September 23, Kate Sullivan interviews debut author Wendy Welch who discusses her memoir, The Little Bookstore of Big Stone Gap.

Welch discusses her hard-to-find bookshop, recruiting a shop-sitter (they found one as a result of coverage by Huffington Post, NPR, and the LA Times), being an educator at UVA, and what it takes for a used bookshop owner to wrangle cats, kittens, customers, and avid readers in a forlornly rural location.

Tune in to the fun. Listen each Sunday afternoon for the WordSmitten "About the Books" broadcast.

Recent guests include Pulitzer Prize-winning authors Jane Smiley, Elizabeth Strout, and Edward P. Jones.
