Founded by Jessica Ewing, Literati is an innovative experiential book club for all ages dedicated to connecting people through the power of reading. Literati launched in 2017 as a unique try-before-you-buy book-curation service for kids, and in August 2020, the brand expanded to offer book clubs for adults led by thought leaders like Stephen Curry, Malala, and Cheryl Strayed. But before Ewing completely reshaped the art of book discovery, she worked in tech as a product manager at Google. In fact, Ewing was featured in Fast Company as one of Google's 12 Most Innovative Minds in 2007, and she is the co-owner of five different patents in consumer technology design. On this episode of Second Life, find out how Ewing's past career and personal experiences (i.e., writing a novel of her own!) led her to create a company for artists and creators that is solving the problem of book discovery.
