EW talked to Molly Ringwald recently about her new novel, When it Happens To You  and her writing career. She also sure knows how to support her fellow writers! Here’s Ringwald reading the beginning of  Emma Straub‘s new novel, Laura Lamont’s Life in Pictures (available Sept. 4).

Straub’s novel is about a young and blonde wisp of a girl named Elsa Emerson in 1920’s rural Wisconsin who, through various twists of fate, grows up to be Laura Lamont, dark-haired and exotic movie star. Straub previously wrote the wonderful short story collection Other People We Married  and we’re guessing Laura Lamont’s Life in Pictures will be among the more buzzed books in fall.

Listen to Molly Ringwald reading the beginning of the novel and see what you think!
