Season Finale: The Meaning of Mariah Carey by Mariah Carey and Michaela Angela Davis
83 perc 47. rész Kari Herrera and Alexis Honoria

Mariah Carey is a girl from New York state whose mom was Irish and her father, Black. She has a brother and sister but no family. 

What she does have is the following:

  • The most weeks at number one on Billboard's Hot 100 Chart for any artist in American history
  • 19 number-one singles – second only to the Beatles
  • The honor of being the only artist to have a number-one single in each year of a decade (!!!)

  • 5 Grammy Awards
  • 19 World Music Awards
  • 10 American Music Awards
  • 15 Billboard Music Awards
  • A place in the Songwriters Hall of Fame

When people had to save up, wake up, stand in line, and wait to hear their favorite artist, they were buying her albums by the MILLIONS. Her talent is undeniable. 

 

This is the story of a real-life person named Mariah, aka Me-Me, aka the Elusive Chanteuse, aka M.C. The meaning of Mariah is a memoir by one of the greatest singer/songwriters of our generation. Within its pages, she talks about the people who almost killed her, tried to get her hooked on drugs, tried to get her pimped, and tried to kill her dreams - all before she turned 18 years old. She also gives her honest opinion regarding her triumphs and failures and the cast of people who opened their hearts to let her in when those tasked with the job failed to be reliable.

Word by Word: The Secret Life of Dictionaries by Kory Stamper
51 perc 45. rész Kari Herrera and Alexis Honoria

Word up! Words have meaning, and behind every great definition is a pale, emaciated lexicographer melting away under the fire of language. What does "take" mean in "to take a nap," and how is that "take" different from "take" in "taken aback" or "take a meeting" or "take a poop." With sharp wit and a terrifying large vocabulary, one writer busts wide open the complex, obsessive world of lexicography. The seemingly dullest profession in the world is painted like a new branch of the Marvel universe thanks to her keen knack for honest storytelling and her passion for logophilia. In the end, three things are clear: our language is constantly changing, the people who define it are insane, and no matter how hallowed you consider its page, the dictionary is not a holy book. The lexicographer: Kory Stamper.

Hey, all you glee gals and geeks! We're bringing a very special episode to you this week — Hamilton the Musical by Lin-Manuel Miranda! We know, we know. Last episode, we said we were taking the week off to read Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy. Rest assured, we're reading every bit of that billion-page book, but we've still got time to gush over one of our favorite musicals of all time. Did you know that without Hamilton, there would be no Lit Society Podcast? In the summer of 2019, we started a real-life book club because Alexis wanted to read Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow before seeing the musical in London's West End. The rest is history, much like this, the story of a founding father without a father who got a lot farther by working a lot harder and being a self-starter.

The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides
76 perc 25. rész Kari Herrera and Alexis Honoria

What is love? Baby, don't hurt me.

 

Alicia Berenson is a beautiful, brilliant painter married to one of the best looking fashion photographers in the world. Her life is seemingly perfect, which is why it is so unbelievable that she'd shoot her husband five times in the face and then refuse ever to speak again. What really happened to push her over the edge? It becomes the mission of psychotherapist Theo Faber to find the answer. Will he succeed without losing himself in the process?

 

Before diving into this week's book, Alexis gives eight reasons why every one of us should be keeping a journal. We remember experiences better when we write them down (travel journal) and eat more thoughtfully when we jot down what we've put in our mouth (a food journal). Above all else, though, a journal can be a great way to get back at people posthumously (it will all make sense. Promise).

Piecing Me Together by Renee Watson

Dear Committee Members by Julie Schumacher
59 perc 17. rész Kari Herrera and Alexis Honoria

A short, punchy novel that, according to Goodreads, "finally puts the 'pissed' back into epistolary." Dear Committee Members gives a full look into the late middle-age life of one Jason Fitger. Fitger is the professor of creative writing and literature at Payne University, a small Midwest university that treats its Economics staff like royalty but its English faculty like dinosaurs who have stayed far past their extension. In the twilight of his career, he is facing regrets, both romantically and professionally. These frustrations he percolates into a brewing hot cup of sarcasm, pettiness, and reflection through a series of never-ending letters of recommendation that he is tasked with writing by his peers and students. According to the author, our protagonist is like a Quixote figure — lacking common sense and personal and diplomatic skills but continuing to fight. It is the perfect book for people who watch reruns of Frasier on HULU. The theme this week: How to Write a Letter. Enjoy! ...

The Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson (Part 1)
78 perc 12. rész Kari Herrera and Alexis Honoria
The Coronavirus has nothing on Antebellum and Jim Crow south. This was America: Thousands of white families, including men, women, and children, standing for hours to watch Black Americans be dismembered or burned alive for such crimes as "acting white" and stealing .75 cents. In this environment, Black citizens are not allowed to walk too tall, speak too confidently, create art uninhibitedly, or say who cannot speak abuses at their children.  Over the course of 6 decades, more than 6 million people fled the insanity of Jim Crow for their lives and their sanity during a period known as The Great Migration. This week's book follows the story of three strangers, all making their way North, searching for the warmth of other suns. We are inspired by this work of nonfiction to learn why our own families fled the south and under what conditions, for this week's themed discussion. We also give a brief overview of the path from slavery to reconstruction to Jim Crow to the Civil Rights movement. It's like the LITTIEST history lesson ever! This is LIT Society.

This week we’re skipping YA and going all the way to the baby book aisle for a lovable true tale (who knows. Maybe.) about a farm, an intelligent spider, and a piglet with a heart of gold. Truth be told, we selected this book to give our brains a break this week. However, we were pleasantly surprised to find our hearts sincerely moved by this classic, Charlette’s Web, by E.B. White. This week’s book also got us to thinking: “Why have we never read this story?

Sula, by Toni Morrison
72 perc 8. rész Kari Herrera and Alexis Honoria

As the prolific poets TLC once said: What about your friends? Like T-Boz, Sula gets a little crazy, now and then. She may watch her mom burn to death or she may drown a neighborhood boy, and no, that’s not the way it’s supposed to be. But Sula has her reasons for being Sula. For one, her loneliness is palpable. Her dad died when she was three, and her mother loves but doesn’t like her. Toni Morrison’s classic short Sula is about life coming of age in a town where a dream can only go as high as the bottom and where who you want to be is more important than who you are. Before diving into this haunting story, we discuss our own friendships and try to find an answer to the question, “What makes a real friend?” This is LIT Society.
