What are you reading these days?
with Lisa Lickel
Hi, everyone! Happy New Year.
We've done some square-dance shuffling here at the Barn Door lately, as some of our friends have left or gone on sabbatical and we welcome new contributors. Watch for new authors and let's continue to support each other. Thank you for your encouragement and support as we move into our fourth year, celebrating all things Midwest.
It's winter, and we Midwesterners like to cozy up with a book and a steaming cup of something soothing...how about you? What's on your ToBeRead pile?
I read The Snow Child last month for a book club. It's a debut novel by Eowyn Ivey, and I was totally bowled over. It was the best book I read last year, and I loved it. Set in Alaska in the 1920s, it's a retelling of the Russian fairytale.
I guess I've been writing more than reading this fall, and that's been a good thing for me. Next up: I Choose You, the new short story anthology from Oaktara, featuring 36 authors including our friend Elaine Marie Cooper and Susan Baganz, Jen Turano's debut, Change of Fortune, from Bethany which is getting good reviews already. I have started it and itch to get back to it, it's so cute.
How about you? What's going on in your reading world?
