Lisa Brown and American Chickens

Lisa Brown and Lemony Snicket will be coming out with a new picture book Goldfish Ghost this May. While researching the book (which is heeelarious) I cam across Brown's website American Chickens which is a treasure trove of delights. There are fun interviews and and a look at some of her other work.

New Louise Penny!

I am so excited! Glass Houses is coming August 29th 2017.
From Louise’s Facebook post regarding the launch of the site:
“Today, leading up to the August 29th publication of Glass Houses, we’re starting a new feature on Gamache and Three Pines. This was prompted by many of you mentioning that while the books are very much crime novels, the most important elements have little to do with the actual crime. There’s a whole lot more going on, beneath the surface. So we thought it would be interesting to explore that. We’re taking each book and examining the major cultural inspirations behind it. The art, the literature, the music. Things and themes that reverberate through that novel, and through the characters, through the series. And where else would we start but where it all began: ‘Still Life’.”

This feature is awesome! I do love the mysteries; however I think I love the characters, town, side stories even more. The first post is on Still Life and is entitled Surprised By forewarned you may need a hanky.
