Running from September to December, the POWERHOUSE YA Book Talk & Author Q&A Series meets once a month to discuss four brand-new Young Adult novels. Our resident YA Specialist, Megan, will lead an engaging panel-style discussion where you will all be able to participate by asking each month’s author questions directly! Each Book Talk and Q&A takes place on a Tuesday or Wednesday from 6:00pm EST to 7:00pm EST.
Running October 5th through November 30th we offer weekly virtual book club meetings to discuss five brand-new middle-grade novels. The discussion will be led by Brittany, our beloved kid’s book specialist, and as an extra bonus, we will offer the unique opportunity to do a Q&A with the author directly.
Virtual Book Launch: Love Poems for the Office by John Kenney in conversation with Charlie McKittrick
With the same brilliant wit and biting realism that made Love Poems for Married People, Love Poems for People with Children, and Love Poems for Anxious People such hits, John Kenney is back with a brand new collection that tackles the hilarity of life in the office. From waiting in line for the printer and revising spreadsheet after spreadsheet, to lukewarm coffee, office politics, and the daily patterns of your most annoying–and lovable–coworkers, Kenney masterfully captures the warmth and humor of working the “9 to 5” in today’s modern era.
Memoir Monday is a collaboration between Narratively, Catapult, Tin House, The Rumpus, Granta, Guernica, and Longreads to bring the very best first-person writing together all in one place. This month we will be joined by Michele Harper, Alicia Elliott, Elisa Gabbert and Carmen Maria Machado.
From the author of the wildly acclaimed Night Boat to Tangier, one of the New York Times’ 10 Best Books of 2019, stories of rural Ireland in the classic mode: full of love (and sex), melancholy and magic, bedecked in some of the most gorgeous prose being written today.
Tom Bissell vividly renders the complex worlds of characters on the brink of artistic and personal crisis–writers, actors, and other creative types who see things slightly differently from the rest of us. Surreal, poignant, squirmingly awkward–and always just a little bit off–this collection is a brilliant new offering from one of the most versatile and talented writers in America today.
