September Newsletter

Posted by Elizabeth on September 9, 2009
Finding the right balance of authors and books for our newsletter is always challenging. With 2.5 million members, we have every kind of reader imaginable.

Our goal then is for any reader to be able to find something recognizable in our newsletter, and we are constantly juggling genres to find the perfect mean of fiction and nonfiction.

This month we interviewed authors James Ellroy and Anita Diamant. The former is a crime writer with a naughty reputation, the latter, a journalist and author whose historical fiction showcases women in a new light.

We also got "In Bed" with the co-authors of Traveling with Pomegranates: A Mother-Daughter Story, Sue Monk Kidd and her daughter Ann Kidd Taylor, asking them for their favorite books about mothers and daughters.

Please check out Movers & Shakers for a provocative YA recommendation, and some very fine fiction and nonfiction new releases. And our winning poem, BODIES: THE EXHIBITION, sparked yet another heated discussion (scroll down) about the merit of rhyming poetry.

We hope you enjoy our newsletter!

P.S. We will be interviewing Audrey Niffenegger next month. If you have any questions for the author of The Time Traveler's Wife, post them here!
