Just the Right Book! Podcast, hosted by Roxanne Coady of Connecticut’s acclaimed, award-winning, independent bookseller R.J. Julia, is now available on BookTrib.com, the premier website where readers meet writers. The podcast and BookTrib are both dedicated to helping readers find their next favorite read and this pairing will open up a world of great possibilities.
In Coady’s latest episode, she speaks to renowned Georgetown linguist and bestselling author Deborah Tannen who speaks about her previous book, You Just Don’t Understand: Women and Men in Conversation. This book was on the New York Times Bestseller List for four years, and Roxanne says that it “has become the bible for the differences in the way in which girls and women and boys and men converse.” Tannen speaks about a variety of subjects, such as how women make friends with people they can tell everything to, and men tend to make friends with the people they do everything with – showing the boundaries women and men have set for themselves and so much more.
Tannen came to speak on Just the Right Book! to discuss the newest book in her collection, You’re the Only One I Can Tell: Inside the Language of Women’s Friendships, which sheds light on very important information on our conversations with other women and how we maintain these growing friendships.

Poem in this episode:
Some People by Rachel Field
Isn’t it strange some people make
You feel so tired inside,
Your thoughts begin to shrivel up
Like leaves all brown and dried!
But when you’re with some other ones,
It’s stranger still to find
Your thoughts as thick as fireflies
All shiny in your mind!
