The Eras as Book Recommendations + Stratchey, Woolf & Bloomsbury

Where are the Swifties? Jordy and Berkley publicist, Kristin Cipolla, sit down to discuss two of their favorite things: Taylor Swift and books. If you’re looking for book recommendations based on each of Taylor’s eras, you’re in the right place.

They talk about her new and upcoming book, “Young Bloomsbury: The Generation That Reimagined Love, Freedom, and Self-Expression.” Through conversation Alana and Nino discuss Virginia Woolf’s true colors, queer culture across borderlines, and the importance of queer historical writing.
