MY TOWN MONDAY, June 29, 2009
Megan will be reading from BURY ME DEEP, discussing the impetus for the story, and signing copies at Birmingham Borders on Thursday, July 9, 2009 at 7:00. The store is located on Woodward Avenue at Maple (15 Mile) Rd in Birmingham. Here is an excerpt of Chapter One.
I am putting this on MY TOWN MONDAY in the hope that some Detroiters I may not know will see this and come to the reading. Megan grew up and attended college here. She also worked for a state senator before beginning graduate school. .
Publishers are not so anxious to send writers to the midwest nowadays. I'd like to show them we can turn out a decent crowd for a hometown girl. It's tough without a newspaper to write a feature story for her or most likely even review the book.
BURY ME DEEP has received starred reviews from Kirkus and Library Journal and was selected as one of NEW YORK MAGAZINES summer reads. Publishers Weekly and Booklist liked it too. Sarah Weinman lists it on her site as a pick of the week and calls it amazing.
Come out on the ninth and show the publishing world that Detroit still reads books. BURY ME DEEP sells for just $15. Simon and Schuster is the publisher. For the rest of her book tour schedule, see here
