NEWS & CONGRATULATIONS
ITW award winner for Best First Novel Nick Petrie and THE DRIFTER.
Linda Lael Miller, for throwing a fabulous fan party at RT, where she was truly the belle of the ball. This party was mainly for readers, who were thrilled at the chance to meet her in person.
Sharyn McCrumb, for signing copies of THE UNQUIET GRAVE in the chutes at BEA. THE UNQUIET GRAVE is a featured alternate selection of the Literary Guild. The book is also the all-conference read for the West Virginia State Library Conference as well as the 2017 selection for "North Georgia Reads", a community book program sponsored by the state of Georgia Library System.
Michael Bornstein and Debbie Bornstein Holinstat, authors of SURVIVORS CLUB, for a national feature on NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt. It all began with a 72-year-old photo of 4-year-old Michael and several other children being liberated from Auschwitz in 1945. That photo has been used repeatedly surrounding Holocaust events, and it landed on the cover of SURVIVORS CLUB. Two of the young girls in the photo, now in their seventies, saw it and contacted Michael. The result was a reunion of the three survivors, who, as it turned out, live only minutes away from each other! This very moving feature was shown at local stations all over the country, was featured in USA Today, and it even landed on the small screens in the backs of New York City taxis! There is also a penetrating interview with Michael and Debbie about SURVIVORS CLUB on Matter of Fact with Soledad O'Brien. Soledad asks good questions.
