Congratulations to Jennifer Huelsebusch, winner of
our very own Jennifer S. Brown’s MODERN GIRLS!
Check back next week, where we will announce the winner of this weeks giveaway, Emily Liebert’s SOME WOMEN.
From the 2016 Debs:
Louise Miller THE CITY BAKER’S GUIDE TO COUNTRY LIVING was chosen by Bon Appetit magazine as one of the “8 New Food Novels to Read This Year’!!! This happened during AWP, which just made the whole trip to California more surreal and exciting!
Jennifer S. Brown is enjoying the life of a published writer. She loves all the photos folks are sending her of MODERN GIRLS in stores or, even better, being held or read by people. This week’s project: Preparing for Passover and dealing with kids on school vacation. They can’t all be rock star weeks.
Heather Young spent most of the week in Boise, visiting her (increasingly aged) parents. Not much writing got done, but there was a lot of thinking about life and how living eight decades requires one to face a growing number of indignities with grace and a sense of humor.
Abby Fabiaschi is working through her first pass edits. It’s very cool to see I LIKED MY LIFE with clever fonts and official page margins. Also, St. Martin’s has publicly admitted to buying her book and released a pub date! Cover forthcoming …
Aya de Leon is having a moment that’s part dreamy-eyed fangirl, part shrieking game show winner: she’ll be speaking on a panel with one of her essayist idols: Rebecca Solnit at the Bay Area Book Festival in June.
