In this episode, we speak with Kate Jacobs, author of the New York Times bestselling novel, The Friday Night Knitting Club, which will be made into a movie produced by and starring Julia Roberts.
Kate talks about the themes of the book, including how knitting metaphor is a metaphor for life and the meaning and importance of true friendship. She also shares her own favorite knitting projects and discusses what knitting has meant to her personally through the years. Learn more about Kate’s work on KateJacobsBooks.com.
