October State of the Thing

I just sent out October’s State of the Thing, our monthly newsletter. Sign up to get it, or you can read a copy online.

This month’s State of the Thing features 2 exclusive author interviews:

Allison Hoover Bartlett, is the author of The Man Who Loved Books Too Much: The True Story of a Thief, a Detective, and a World of Literary Obsession. Bartlett digs into the true-crime story of John Gilkey, the obsessed rare book thief and Ken Sanders, the self-appointed “bibliodick” driven to catch him.

Hope Edelman‘s newest book is The Possibility of Everything, a memoir about a week in 2000 when she traveled to Belize with her husband and three-year-old daughter to visit a shaman.

Both Hope and Allison are also participating in chats with LibraryThing members right now—stop by and ask them questions here.

Next month, one of the interviewees we have lined up is Gregory Maguire. Got a question for him? Post it here and we might use it in the upcoming interview.

    When I open the link 'read a copy online' it takes me to the newsletter but has 'Dear Abby Blachly' at the top.

    This can't be correct can it? seeing as I'm Andy Ekins?



  2. Abby says:

    Hi Andy,
    In fact, what you're doing when you click the 'read a copy online' link is reading the copy that was sent to me. We don't have a good way (yet) to make it a link customized to the the person looking at it. On the to-do list now, though, so thanks!
