ALA Book Club Central Highlights Short Stories—including one “Novel in…”!

The American Library Association’s Book Club Central has just announced its May Picks from Sisters in Crime—celebrating May as Short Story Month—and I’m so pleased to have my book On the Road With Del & Louise: A Novel in Stories featured on the list!

The line-up of featured books spans a nice range, from single-author collections by Barb Goffman, Gigi Pandian, and Travis Richardson to three multi-author anthologies: Fishy Business: The Fifth Guppies Anthology, Sisters in Crime Los Angeles Presents Last Resort, and Where Crime Never Sleeps by the New York/Tri-State Chapter of Sisters in Crime. I’m so pleased that they made room as well for my own book, building a novel out of six interconnected short stories.

The ALA Book Club Central is a great site generally—in their own words:

a new online resource for book clubs and readers featuring book reviews, author interviews, discussion questions and more. Award-winning actor, producer, and avid reader Sarah Jessica Parker is the Honorary Chair of Book Club Central and a passionate advocate for libraries and literacy. Ms. Parker will offer her own book selections as part of SJP Picks.

In addition to Sisters in Crime, other partners include Booklist, United for Libraries, Libraries Transform, Penguin Random House, NoveList, and OverDrive.

Congrats to my other friends included here—and happy Short Story Month to all!
