Every once in a while, a debut novel breaks the mold and captures the imagination of America. It’s beginning to look like Nancy Jensen has a monster hit on her hands.
We’re fortunate to have Nancy joining us for a reading and booksigning tomorrow, beginning at 2 p.m. The Sisters was selected by independent booksellers as December’s top book via our IndieNext List. That’s a huge honor and it looks like this is just the first of many honors still to come.
We recall when The Help first hit our shelves. The book continued to sell and sell and sell, only coming out in paperback in its third year of release, along with a hit movie of the same name.
My disappointment comes with this thought. What if Nancy Jensen comes to New Albany during these earliest days of her book’s release and then it becomes the next The Help? Won’t you be sad that you missed this chance to meet and hear a new superstar in the publishing world? Won’t you regret missing out on an autographed first edition?
Please join us Saturday at 2 p.m. The event will continue on until 4 p.m. Thank you.
