Emma Straub is the author of the new novel ALL ADULTS HERE and proprietor of BOOKS ARE MAGIC in Brooklyn, NY. Today she discusses what it's like being an author and bookstore owner, and the unique challenges that both of those pose today. In conversation with our own Amy Brinker, Emma lets us know what she's reading, how she's preparing for the launch of her latest book, and which books are inspiring her right now.

ABOUT THE BOOK: In All Adults Here, Emma Straub’s unique alchemy of wisdom, humor, and insight come together in a deeply satisfying story about adult siblings, aging parents, high school boyfriends, middle school mean girls, the lifelong effects of birth order, and all the other things that follow us into adulthood, whether we like them to or not.
