Such a thrill to be featured in the stunning Maze Magazine for the French release of WE ARE UNPREPARED. Here's a bit of the translated interview...

On the occasion of the re-entry of literature, great names of French or foreign literature flock to bookshelves. The authors make a tour of the cultural programs, talking to all goes to sell their books, sometimes very good, sometimes disappointing. But literary re-entry is also the occasion to discover pearls, authors unknown to the general public, the first novels that announce a promising career.

This is the case of the Storms, the first book by Meg Little Reilly.

Book Festivals!

I had an incredible time this weekend speaking at not one but two world class literary festivals.

On Saturday at the Boston Book Festival, I had the privilege of joining the stage with novelists Suzanne Berne, Anna Solomon and Michelle Hoover for a discussion about social commentary and fiction. With an audience of more than 100, we had a robust discussion that left me thinking hard about future work! 

And for the final stop on my book tour, I was back in my beloved hometown for the always impressive Brattleboro Literary Festival. In the stunning river garden setting, I joined novelist Laura van den Berg for a readings and discussion of climate, dystopia, and realism. I was so grateful to all the old friends and new readers who turned out. 

Here's a lovely write-up of the festival from the Brattleboro Reformer.

But enough of these events! Book number two isn't going to write itself...

Thank you, Washington DC!

I had such an incredible time talking to a packed house at one of my favorite bookstores, Kramerbooks, in my old stomping ground of DC last week. It was a special honor to be interviewed by the extraordinary best-selling author, Jennifer Close. Thank you to all the old friends and new readers who showed up! 

There's a little wrap-up of the reading and party from POLITICO here.
