No Rest for PPB’s Authors!

author_lineup 1
As spring barrels toward summer, Prospect Park’s authors are racing hither and thither in support of their wonderful books—so much so that we can barely keep up with them. Associate publisher Patty O’Sullivan tried her best to keep up in New York last week, where Michelle Brafman (Washing the Dead) and Michal Lemberger (After Abel & Other Stories) read at Book Culture for an event sponsored by Lilith Magazine. Meanwhile, farther downtown, Anne Flett-Giordano signed stacks of her about-to-be-released novel Marry, Kiss, Kill at the Mystery Writers of America booth at BookExpo America; Anne was also featured in Publishers Weekly‘s Show Daily that day. Also in New York was Plus One author Christopher Noxon, who was chosen to take part in the Jewish Book Council‘s “literary speed-dating” program, in which authors meet with representatives from synagogues, JCCs, and other Jewish organizations from around the country who are looking for authors to speak to their associations. Joining Christopher were the indomitable Michelle & Michal, who have been neck-deep in book-launch events.

We don’t know when Michelle Brafman fits in sleep, given her schedule of appearances all over Washington, DC and Maryland; coming up June 2 is an interview on the hugely popular Kojo Nnamdi radio show on DC’s NPR station, WAMU, followed by several more events in the greater DC area, including a reading and signing at Upshur Street Books on June 18th.

After several launch events in L.A., Michal is getting ready to read from After Abel & Other Stories at Book Soup on June 2, followed by a reading at LA’s ultra-cool Vermin on the Mount on June 9. Publisher Colleen Dunn Bates just attended a party to welcome beloved Berkeley publisher Heyday Books to Los Angeles—it has just opened a satellite office here—and she’s preparing to speak on a publishing panel at the Summer Writing Project in Orange.
