Ep. 107: Julia Glass, Author of Vigil Harbor

This week, I was honored to get to talk all things books and writing with the National Book Award–winning, best-selling author of Three Junes, Julia Glass. Her masterful new novel, Vigil Harbor, is set in a fictional version of Marblehead, Massachusetts ten years in the future and explores climate instability, political violence, and domestic upheavals. Tune in to go behind the book with us.




“In her new novel, Julia Glass gathers a combustible cast of characters, places them ten years from now, and strikes a match. Fast-paced, immersive, and imaginatively daring, Vigil Harbor is a brave look at our climate perils, our political moment, and our deep dependence on one another.” —Lily King, author of Writers & Lovers
