Show Notes

September is still summer in our books, and there is still plenty of time to put a couple more "beach reads" in your beach bags. Our latest guest is Sunny Hostin, the 3x Emmy Award-winning co-host of ABC’s “The View” and the New York Times best-selling author of Summer on the Bluffs and Summer on Sag Harbor. Sunny discusses her memoir, I Am These Truths, and how writing it helped form her identity, as well as talking about her novels and how place acts as a character. Recommendations, events, and tips for visiting both Oak Bluffs and Sag Harbor are sprinkled throughout the episode, as well as Sunny's view on being famous before publishing books and whether or not she reads her online reviews.
