Author Allison Winn Scotch (C’95) debuts her book “The Department of Lost and Found.”
“The critics are calling it, “smart and well-written,” “an impressive debut,” “a bonbon of a book,” “too good to pass up,” and more. It was also Redbook’s Book Club selection for the month of May (see the issue for an excerpt, and check out their site later this week for the entire first chapter). And if you’re still unconvinced, The Literary Guild just named me “a writer to watch.
…The first few weeks of sales can make or break a publisher’s support, and since you’re going to buy it eventually, why not do it today? And after you’ve read it (and loved it), please head to Amazon and post your review. Pretty, pretty please.”
In a book club? HarperCollins has put together a Reading Group Guide, and I’m more than happy to call into your club and chat if you choose it as your club’s selection. Just let me know.
Finally, all you New Yorkers, please do mark your calendars: next Wednesday, May 16th, I’ll be holding my first reading and signing at Borders at the Time Warner Center . Time: 7:00 PM. Be there or be square. (Or something like that.)”
"Because of Penntertainment, I got scouted for Nickelodeon. I had such a great time talking with them. I may be a resource for a show on science, travel, geography, gender etc. Thanks for all you do. It really makes a difference." -Lisa Niver Rajna C’89
