You should probably book your flight now because everyone who’s anyone is going to California next month to catch Karen Joy Fowler on her mini tour (not, sadly, by one-person submarine) celebrating her new book, her first collection of stories in ages, What I Didn’t See and Other Stories.
Karen will be reading at some of the best indie bookshops in the Great Bear state (that’s what the flag says to me, that’s what I’m going with). Why do we love these stores? Because they’re all individual, all different from one another. For instance, if you ship at Vroman’s you can sign up for their Vroman’s Gives Back program and choose which organization a % of your sale will go to. Magnifique!
If you’re not a Californian and would like a signed copy of What I Didn’t See, you can order it from any of these stores and they will hold it for you, get it signed, and ship it to you.
