About Jackie 3282 Articles
I am a 30-something SAHM with two adorable boys and a supportive husband who is very tolerant of my reading addiction. I love to read and easily go through about a dozen books a month – well I did before I had kids. Now, not so much. After my first son was born, I began to take my hobby of reviewing a little more serious and started Literary Escapism to help with my sanity. I love to discuss the fabulous novels I’ve read and meeting all the wonderful people in the book blogging community has been amazing.


  1. Hey Jackie,

    I would love to attend this but I can’t do to other obligations this weekend. Is there a way to get transcripts? There are definitely some things I’d like to read about!

    • Hey Lisa,

      The event is done all through podcasts and the audios is thrown up for a month after the conference ends. So in theory, yes you can definitely get to hear what was discussed, but only through the conference.
