(Sorry: Just couldn’t help the alliteration in the post title!)
Nashville’s Southern Festival of Books was this past weekend, and there’s nothing like three days of readings, signings and book buying to get us in the mood for . . . even more reading!
BookPage editors interviewed three of the authors who were in town for the festival: Marisa de los Santos about her new book, Falling Together; Chris Bohjalian about The Night Strangers; and Chad Harbach about The Art of Fielding. Stay tuned for the videos!
After the interview, we asked Harbach to sign a copy of The Art of Fielding. We’re giving that away today, and we’re also throwing in four more fall novels: A Trick of the Light by Louise Penny, The End of the Wasp Season by Denise Mina, Irma Voth by Miriam Toews and Lot’s Return to Sodom, by another Southern Festival of Books guest, Sandra Brannan.
Here’s how you can win . . .
TO ENTER: Comment on this post with a story about your last memorable interaction with an author—maybe you went to a reading at a bookstore in your town; maybe you went to a book festival; maybe you heard an awesome author interview on NPR that made you tear up. We want to hear about it!
CONTEST DETAILS: One winner will be chosen by random.org from among entries received by 6 pm CST on October 21. The winner will receive copies of The Art of Fielding, A Trick of the Light, The End of the Wasp Season, Lot’s Return to Sodom and Irma Voth. This prize must be shipped to a North American address.
ETA: Congratulations to our winner, Sasha! She works at a bookstore where Dave Ramsey spoke and signed books: “The book signing was a lot of fun to work and I get excited when I see other people so enthusiastic about meeting authors.”
Thank you to all who entered. Contest is now closed.
