This week, we're delighted to have Emily Midorikawa back with us to discuss her new book, Out of the Shadows: Six Visionary Victorian Women in Search of a Public Voice, out now in both North America and the U.K, as well as her research process, the gift of libraries and librarians, parenthood, writing partners, and how she's worked during the pandemic.

Emily is a winner of the Lucy Cavendish Fiction Prize. Her journalism has been published in, among others, the Daily Telegraph, the Paris Review, The Times (of London) andthe Washington Post. She teaches on the writing programme at New York University London. Emily is also the coauthor of A Secret Sisterhood: The Literary Friendships of Jane Austen, Charlotte Brontё, George Eliot, and Virginia Woolf, written with Emma Claire Sweeney, and published in 2017. She also collaborated with Emma on the long-running and excellent blog about female literary friendship, Something Rhymed.
