Heart of the East End – March 17th, 2022

Cait Jacobs, Thoughtful Thursday underwritten by Guild Hall

Cait Jacobs, 24, of Mattituck, began a TikTok community called Booktok that has amassed several billion views on social media. Through it she has begun to influence the traditional publishing industry by, for example, bringing attention to self-published authors who have since had their books’ rights purchased by large publishing companies like Penguin Books. Cait joins the show this morning to give us a run-down of her top picks for this Saint Patrick’s Day.
