Julie Klam talks about her new memoir, Friendkeeping, with NPR’s Linda Holmes

“I realized as I read it that I wasn't responding only to the book itself — which covers territory like secrets, crisis management, and how much advice to give your friends — but to the mere fact that it was written.

Not something you attend to specifically.” To read the full piece, click here.
