Spring is coming. It is, really. Even if it doesn’t feel that way right now. Spring is coming. And so are the books. Get a preview of all our amazing new fiction in the Algonquin Reader for Spring 2016. Enter below for a chance to win a copy of The Reader.
The Reader offers unique insight into how the authors came to write these new works. They take you behind the scenes of their writing process and then straight into their heart of their work with their author essays followed by an excerpt from each book.
For example, you’d probably never guess that Gina Wohlsdorf “lived in a constant state of worry and fear” as a kid, based on her hair-raising, sleep-with-the-lights-on novel Security. Honored and beloved author Larry Watson tells us about his grandfather, a real cowboy, who informed his writing of As Good as Gone. Kaitlyn Greenidge takes us inside her own family and the experiment that almost happened that inspired her much-buzzed-about debut novel, We Love You, Charlie Freeman. Only a YA author, only Sean Beaudoin, could explore the thrills and disappointments of adult life as he does in Welcome Thieves, his first work for grownups. Bestselling author and historian Robert Morgan knows the terrain of the runaway slaves in Chasing the North Star. And Elizabeth J. Church watched her mother and women of her generation caught in the male-dominated expectation of the scientific world and society at large in the decades after World War II, as the story simmered for her acclaimed debut The Atomic Weight of Love.
The Reader is the breath of fresh Spring air you’ve been craving.
