This week’s episode features an in-depth conversation with writer Amanda Stern. We discuss her incredible new book LITTLE PANIC: DISPATCHES FROM AN ANXIOUS LIFE, how she deals with her lifelong anxiety, her connection to Etan Patz, and the absolute horror of separating children from their parents.
Amanda Stern was born in New York City and raised in Greenwich Village. She’s the author of The Long Haul and eleven books for children written under the pseudonyms Fiona Rosenbloom and AJ Stern.
In 2003, she founded the Happy Ending Music and Reading Series, a long-running and beloved event that became an essential part of the New York City literary landscape.
She lives in Brooklyn with her dog, Busy.
She is the author of the brand new book Little Panic: Dispatches From an Anxious Life, which is now available wherever books are sold. To grab the audiobook for free (and a 30-day free trial of the Audible service), head over to www.anxietydiariespodcast.com/audible!
