About the Program

Book Soup at the Skirball! The host of NPR's Pop Culture Happy Hour podcast, Linda Holmes, delivers a heartfelt novel about the unlikely relationship between a young woman who's lost her husband and a major league pitcher who's lost his game. Come hear her discuss her joyful, hilarious, and hope-filled debut with Sam Sanders (correspondent and host of NPR's It's Been a Minute with Sam Sanders).

Publishers Weekly calls it a "satisfying crowd-pleaser."

A book signing follows the program. Books will be distributed at will call, the night of the program. Additional books available for purchase.
