I’m deeply honored that The Bookwoman Book Club has selected In Our Midst as its club-read for March, and I’m thrilled that I’ll be closing out Women’s History Month with an online talk, led by Julie Frey of The Women’s National Book Association, on Wednesday, March 31 at 7:30 p.m. Eastern Time. Members of the Bookwoman Book Club will be joining in, but everyone is welcome! Hope you can make it. You can register here.
Now through December 31, 2020, you can snag a 20% discount on my novel In Our Midst. If you’re a member of a reading group planning to add In Our Midst to your 2021 schedule, this is a great time to order a copy individually or multiple copies as a group. I love chatting with reading groups, so if you’d like for me to join you online for part of your meeting, please get in touch. In the meantime, here’s the reading group guide.
The 20% discount code applies to In Our Midst–and all other offerings from my publisher Dzanc Books, so visit the site and consider stocking up on reading to carry you until a COVID vaccine is widely distributed and proving effective. At checkout, enter the code 2020SNAG.
I’m thrilled that In Our Midst will be featured with three other wonderful novels selected as Great Group Reads at the Virtual BiblioFeast 2020, sponsored by the Women’s National Book Association–Charlotte and Park Road Books. I hope you can join the feast via Zoom on Monday, 19 October at 7:00 p.m. EST. It’s sure to be a compelling evening with short readings and a lively discussion. RSVP here to receive a direct link via email for BiblioFeast 2020.
Thank you to the Women’s National Book Association for naming In Our Midst a selection for Great Group Reads 2020!
As I’ve said before and will no doubt say many times again, I love talking with reading groups, so perhaps the greatest thrill of having In Our Midst included on this list is that more reading groups will have a chance to discover the book and possibly choose it for discussion.
You can read the first chapter right here and see the reading group guide by clicking here. If your group chooses In Our Midst, I’d love to join you for a portion of your meeting via Zoom or Skype or whatever platform works for you. Please get in touch, and let’s see what we can work out!
Before joining me via Zoom for At Home with Literati, check out this interview with Michelle Dotter, my editor and publisher at Dzanc Books. On Monday, September 28 at 7:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, Michelle and I will be talking about the relevance of In Our Midst and the challenges of publishing in the tumult of current times. Please join us via Zoom at the Literati, the 2019 Indie Bookstore of the Year on Monday, September 28 at 7:00 p.m., Eastern Standard Time.
If you missed my conversation earlier this month with bestselling novelist Sena Jeter Naslund, you can still access the recording here, through the Carmichael’s Bookstore event page.
