Take a look at some of the things I’ve appreciated lately.
- Penguin has developed an online community called “Book Country” for the purpose of developing community among unpublished authors, providing quality feedback on manuscripts, and moving toward publication, including self-publishing.
- Tayari Jones mentioned the other day that Rachel Lloyd has published her memoir, Girls Like Us, and I’ve linked to Girls Educational & Mentoring Services which Ms. Lloyd founded.
- Speaking of Tayari Jones, please watch her website or blog because her third novel, Silver Sparrow, is due next month.
- Professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr. will be speaking on “African American Lives: Genealogy, Genetics, and Black History” at Rockefeller Chapel today if you’re in the area.
