Remembered how you loved Water for Elephants? Couldn’t put down Mudbound? Well, this is your chance for a Books & Books exclusive look at books from the same publishing house that brought you those – Algonquin Books of Chapel Hill. Book after book, Algonquin brings us the stories that stay with us, the titles that everyone ends up talking about. Tonight, Algonquin brings us a Books & Books exclusive preview of its fall lineup – and reception. Now’s your chance to know about the word-of-mouth hits before they become hits.
Pssst, one of those hits is going to be A Friend of the Family by Lauren Grodstein. And tonight, we’re getting a special advance release of A Friend of the Family just for Books & Books! Read it before you can buy it (you won’t be able to buy it anywhere else until October).
Meet Lauren Grodstein and Craig Popelars — one of the coolest guys in the publishing world, period. He is the director of marketing for Algonquin Publishing and a tastemaker who works with some of best authors (like Lauren). He’ll give us the inside scoop and advance look at what to read this fall from the best publishing house you don’t know. But you do know their books. And trust us, you can trust his taste.
Tell your friends, bring you book club. Don’t miss this special night.
