Thursday, November 16, 7pm, Three Debut Novelists Talk Turkey, sponsored by the Boston Author’s Club, with Annie Hartnett (Rabbit Cake, Tin House Books) and Kelly Ford (Cottonmouths, Skyhorse Publishing) at Newtonville Books, Newton

Behind every book on the shelf is its journey to publication; an odyssey often fraught with roller coaster drama, countless hours of work, and sometimes even joy. This program combines advice, experience, and humor from three local debut novelists. Please join us to hear Erica, Annie, and Kelly talk about their respective paths from dreaming of publication to holding the actual book in their hands.

Panel: Reading Like a Writer, Boston Book Festival, Copley Square, Boston, MA.
This session will consist of three twenty-minute guided explorations of the work of authors whose recent fiction conjures up a particularly evocative sense of place: Brunonia Barry (The Fifth Petal, which is set in Salem), Jessie Chaffee (Florence in Ecstasy, set in Florence and Boston), and Erica Ferencik (The River at Night, set in the Maine wilderness). Our host is Henriette Lazaridis, whose novel The Clover House is set largely in Greece.
