Back to Kingsbridge with Ken Follett

The Evening and the Morning is the fourth book in Ken Follett's Kingsbridge cycle; this time set in the year 997, the twilight of the Dark Ages around 100 years before the events of The Pillars of the Earth. All of the trademarks of Follett previous historical epics are here love and betrayal, greed and ambition, and a cast of divergent characters that find themselves thrust together in the burgeoning village of Kingsbridge.

I am so excited to be hosting an in conversation event between authors Rebecca Baum and Karol Ann Hoeffner! Both authors have new novels set in Louisiana! Both are established writers and I look forward to digging in with them about the craft of writing, the importance of a sense of place, and why the South (and Louisiana especially) is just such a fascinating setting.

Michelle Reviews new Alyssa Cole

If we have ever talked books you know that the one genre I don't play with is Mystery & Suspense. I am way too nervous for that. I'll take your creepy vampires (I'll take the sparkly ones too) and all the other creatures of the night found in the Horror section, but I can't handle the murderers that lurk in Mystery. But when one of my favorite Romance writers decides to take on the genre I simply cannot resist.

Book Club - The Parable of the Sower by Octavia Butler

This month we will be diving into Octavia Butler's dystopian classic, The Parable of the Sower. First published in 1993, The Parable of the Sower sees the world of the 2020s in a state of chaos...so for a while I thought this book (originally our book club pick for March of this year) was too heavy for the present moment. But every month, as I think about what we will read together, I keep coming back to Butler and to this book.

Meg Cabot Recommends ...

Meg Cabot, beloved by all Romancelandia for giving us the gift that is Mia Thermopolis, is this year's Bookstore Romance Day Ambassador. Cabot is the perfect author to represent the spirit of Bookstore Romance Day! The romance genre is wide, with more subgenres and ranges of interest than I can name and Meg Cabot has published books in many of them!
