5 Star Reads of 2023 (so far) + The Wild Wild Alaskan Front with Iris Yamashita

A Black woman sits in a chair reading

It’s been a very good year of reading for Renee so far. Even though we’ve barely scratched the surface of the year (and we’re still covered in snow), Renee shares seven books that she’s rated five stars already.

Then, Jordy sits down with Academy-Award nominated screenwriter, Iris Yamashita, to discuss her debut novel, City Under One Roof. This thriller is set in an Alaskan town that becomes isolated when an avalanche hits – no way in, no way out. When body parts begin to wash ashore, the town residents’ secrets slowly come to the surface.
