Joy Sandwich

On Episode 28 of Joy Sandwich, we're so thrilled to welcome two special guests: Jane, Head of Teen Services at the Pasadena Public Library, and Jennifer Niven, author of All The Bright Places! In our first segment of the episode, we chat with Jane about the amazing Pasadena Loves YA! book festival. In the second segment, we talk with Jennifer about so many things, from writing for a YA audience and book promotion to mental health awareness, honesty in writing to your audience, her love of Supernatural (she's totally Team Sam), and so much more! Thanks so much for listening!

And as always, embrace your joy!

On Episode 27 of Joy Sandwich, Jessica and Non sit down with their friend Alethea, bibliophile, cat lover, crafty, and passionate supporter of the community of book people! In this episode, we delve into what the BOOK COMMUNITY is all about, from enjoying things without expectation and sharing joy with other like-minded joy mongers to the heartbreak of when that goes awry, book assignments in school, and just having an unadulterated enthusiasm for books, bookstores, libraries, and book festivals! What do you love about the book and reading community? What makes it special? Let us know by tweeting us @JoySandwich or on Facebook at! Thanks for listening!

And as always, embrace your joy!
