Book Club

~ We're deep into our July #teamALUreads pick, Two-Gun & Sun. This week we interviewed author June Hutton about some of our questions. Top of the list: were there actually solar panels way back when?

~ We went Under the Cover with author Stella Leventoyannis Harvey to see what it's like for an author to go into a book club to discuss their own work. Conclusion: nerves are always a factor.

~ Our August pick, A Gentle Habit (Kegedonce Press), is now on sale until August 1st! Get the book now before we start chatting about it on August 3rd.


~ Listen in on Adrienne Gruber as she reads from her latest collection of poetry, Buoyancy Control, about identity and sea monsters!

~ We put author Matthew Murphy on the Writer's Block to learn more about his writing habits and fav authors.
