One Book, One Community

Rose Under Fire has been chosen as Central Pennsylvania's One Book, One Community read across a 6-county area including over 80 libraries. I'm incredibly excited and honored that my book's been chosen, and I'll be speaking at a couple of local events in connection with the program. Join me on 4 April 2017 at the Beth Israel Synagogue in Lebanon, PA, where I'll be talking about Rose Under Fire and flying! You can find more information about the event here. We've also got a mini-author-interview here to give you a taster!
