Jean talks with Jenny Offill and Elissa Schappell, co-editors of Money Changes Everything: Twenty-Two Writers Tackle the Last Taboo with Tales of Sudden Windfalls, Staggering Debts, and Other Surprising Turns of Fortune. This collection of personal stories, written by people from all different walks of life, seeks to explore the role that money has played in their lives, say Jenny and Elissa.
Jean also speaks with two of the book's contributors, Fred Leebron and Kathryn Rhett. Both are writers and college professors who have been married 17 years. In the book, they each wrote an essay describing how money has affected their relationship. In his piece titled "For Richer," Fred reveals his somewhat frugal attitude, while Kathryn's essay "For Poorer" details her take that money shouldn't rule your life. They talk to Jean about how to make varying money styles mesh in a marriage.
