I'm excited to be partnering with Coach House Books
to bring you next month's Author/Reader Discussion book!
We'll be reading and discussing
In order to stimulate discussion,
Coach House has agreed to giveaway 8 copies
Here is the Goodreads description:
In the stories of Mad Hope, Journey Prize winner Heather Birrell finds the heart of her characters and lets them lead us into worlds both recognizable and alarming. A science teacher and former doctor is forced to re-examine the role he played in Ceauşescu’s Romania after a student makes a shocking request; a tragic plane crash becomes the basis for a meditation on motherhood and its discontents; women in an online chat group share (and overshare) their anxieties and personal histories; and a chance encounter in a waiting room tests the ties that bind us.
Using precise, inventive language, Birrell creates astute and empathetic portraits of people we thought we knew – and deftly captures the lovely, maddening mess of being human.
This giveaway will run through September 8th.
Winners will be notified here and via email on September 9th.
Here's how to enter:
1 - Leave a comment stating why you would like to win a copy.
2 - State that you agree to participate in the group read book discussion that will run from October 15th through the end of the month. Heather Birrell has agreed to participate in the discussion and will be available to answer any questions you may have for her.
