Episode 007: Loving Beloved
Episode 006: Getting Used to Ulysses
In Episode 005, "Color Us Moved," we discover that neither of us could complete this classic on the first go-round, but are both profoundly grateful to have given it a reread. We talk about race, gender, and more than one pool party. Listen in, and then share your own thoughts on The Color Purple with us! Follow us at @rereadpod in all those social media ways, email us email@example.com, or check out our website: www.rereadpod.com! Can't wait to reread with you!
004: To Re:Read a Mockingbird
Join Alix + Jess as they take on The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck and consider the dual trauma of the Dust Bowl and Depression, the power and pitfalls of the protest novel, and the plausibility of a central character gone missing halfway through the book. Seriously, where did Noah GO? Join in the rereading journey at www.rereadpod.com or on social media @rereadpod!

In this episode we almost have a legitimate fight about the legitimacy of Catcher in the Rye in the American canon, tackle a near-medical emergency, and accost an imaginary J.D. Salinger in a grocery store. One of the big questions we ponder in this episode is: how autobiographical is J.D. Salinger’s only full-length novel? If so, what are we to make of Holden Caulfield? And is is ever appropriate to name a kid after him? These, and other searing Catcher in the Rye questions, are on tap in Re:Read Episode 002. To reread with us, grab a copy of The Catcher in the Rye at your local bookstore or neighborhood library, or download it from your favorite digital book space. Check out our website, rereadpod.com to "re:spond" and join the Re:Read conversation! And, post fun selfies of yourself rereading and tag us at @rereadpod on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook! We'd love you to share this with us!! With Love and Squalor - Alix + Jess
In this, our maiden episode, we’re rereading F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby. We’re talking love, loss, the American Dream, and a glorious moment in high school where Jess launched a shot-put into her own head in pursuit of a boy. My wouldn’t Gatsby be proud? To reread with us, grab a copy of The Great Gatsby at your local bookstore or neighborhood library, or download it from your favorite digital book space. We can't wait to Re:Read with you!

So we have this idea: What if we go back and reread all those classic books that dotted our syllabi in high school and college but now reside on dusty shelves? Two decades after we graduated from high school, we're ready to pull those books off the shelves (or download digitally. The future is now, people.) and do it all over again. Who's with us?
