Heidi (heideland) | 2 comments Some December suggestions:
Erin Morgenstern, The Night Circus
Karen Thompson Walker, The Age of Miracles (if ppbk is avail by then)
Jeffrey Eugenides, The Marriage Plot (see above or screw it, we could just read his "better" novel Middlesex)

Erin is being done by Talking Volumes. We try to do different things.

The other two are authors high on my list to get to chat with us. Also considering Family Fang, Turn of Mind, Dickens, something holiday like Lamb? Something with a willing author, willing to talk to us, hopefully.

Good luck booking Dickens. Hear he's a bit of a DEADbeat. (Sorry, think the cold meds are kicking in).

Turn of Mind by Alice LaPlante is December's pick! I think Chanhassen will love it and hopefully the rest of us, too.

I have 2013 ideas being cooked up like Gone Girl, Mr. Penumbra's 24 Hour Bookstore, and many others. 2012 was a blast. Let's close it out in style.
