As I've mentioned before, the coming months are very exciting times in the world of book publishing and selling. Two other reasons to smile are a little closer to home.
There is a great literary scavenger hunt that is being run and supported by our local stalwarts at Coffee House, Graywolf and Milkweed Presses. Here is the link to all of the info and story about this--www.twincitieslit.wordpress.com They've already gotten some great local and national press. Please join in on the fun.
The launch for the whole thing is on October 10, 2009 at the Twin Cities Book Festival. www.raintaxi.com has all the info on the festival including a fantastic line-up of authors/speakers.
We are one of the sites participating in "Around the Twin Cities in (Almost) 80 Days and are happy to be part of such a vibrant community of the written word. More info will come from us regarding the particulars once the hunt begins.
