One book we can't for you to read, and two authors we can't wait for you to hear.
We are so thrilled that you enjoyed last week's podcast that featured 2 of our authors from the BOTNS Retreat!
This week, we bring you two more: Ellen Meeropol and Matthew Dicks. I'm so happy that we recorded the talks from Saturday night's Celebration of Authors, because they deserve to be heard by more than the 130 people who were there in person. I know you will enjoy Ellen and Matthew's talks today.
Ellen Meeropol is the author of House Arrest, which was published this past February, and was inspired by a true story of a child's death in a religious cult.
Matthew Dicks is the author of Something Missing and Unexpectedly, Milo -- two books that defy categorization and are thoroughly unique and fun.
But first, a reminder that we are having our live online book discussion of Matthew Dicks' Something Missing on Thursday, April 28th at 9PM. I'll put up a separate post early next week with the website and telephone information so that you can join us. Something Missing is a quick read, so you still have time to read it before the online chat -- but you are welcome to join us even if you haven't yet read the book.
And as a special treat, at the beginning of this week's episode Michael has a book he can't wait for you to read: The Tragedy of Arthur by Arthur Phillips. It's the story of a man whose father found a lost Shakespearean play, and the puzzle of whether or not the play is real. It's a novel, but not a typical straightforward narrative, and it's very fun to read.
Until next week, enjoy!
