Last week I went to part of the Book Expo in NYC. As always it was particularly awesome to meet some of my favorite authors and get their upcoming/new books.
While I got many wonderful reads (I limited myself to about two dozen this year), this picture shows the ones that I REALLY wanted to get and stood in line for, for what felt like ages:
Publishing in October, Geraldine Brooks’ (People of the Book, March, etc.) new novel is about King David. Melanie Benjamin’s (The Aviator’s Wife) novel is about high society in NYC back in the day and the friendship between Truman Capote and Babe Paley (got to wait for this one until 1/2016). Charles Belfoure’s (The Paris Architect) new one is a mystery set in 1880’s New York. It publishes in September. Alice Hoffman’s (Nightbird, The Dovekeepers, etc.) new novel hits the shelves in August and is about the parents of artist Camille Pissarro.
All of this is SO very exciting! Plus I met each author (albeit briefly). Yeah!
