Episode 53 ft. Kate Evans

Kate Evans joins Letโ€™s Talk Memoir for a conversation about being a bit of a wandering writer yet finding the patterns that can emerge from chaos, leaning into momentum while generating work, having her life partner as first reader, her traveling life, the writing retreat she is hosting in April 2024, and her new book Wanderland.  




Ronitโ€™s essays and fiction have been featured in The Atlantic, The Rumpus, The New York Times, The Iowa Review, The Washington Post, Writerโ€™s Digest, American Literary Review, and elsewhere. Her memoir WHEN SHE COMES BACK about the loss of her mother to the guru Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh and their eventual reconciliation was named Finalist in both the 2021 Best Book Awards and the 2021 Book of the Year Award and a 2021 Best True Crime Book by Book Riot. Her short story collection HOME IS A MADE-UP PLACE won Hidden River Artsโ€™ 2020 Eludia Award and will be published in 2022. She is host and producer of the podcasts And Then Everything Changed and The Body Myth.

  1. Aloha Ronit, How does one go about applying to be an interviewee on your podcast? A friend just recommended you and I love what I see and can’t wait to start listening. I’m a recently published author of my first memoir “Psychedelic Wild Child, Coming of Age in The Source Family Cult{ure}”. I am a true memoir fan and love the rich stories and lives people have lived.

    1. Hi Dawn, Congratulations on your new memoir! Thank you very much for writing and for tuning into the podcast. The show had a record number of submissions this season and I am all set with guests with most episodes now in post production. I wish you all the best with your debut. Mazel tov! My best, Ronit
