I'm pleased to announce the first book club show for March 2009 -- Judith Ryan Hendricks, author of Bread Alone and The Baker's Apprentice will join us to discuss her new novel The Laws of Harmony on Tuesday, March 10th at 7 pm EST. In The Laws of Harmony, Hendricks tells the story of Sunny Cooper, who has been running since she was eighteen—from the New Mexican commune where she grew up . . . and from the haunting memory of the freak accident that took the life of her younger sister. Now, at thirty-two, Sunny voices radio spots in Albuquerque while struggling to hold on to a floundering relationship. But when a second tragic accident—and the devastating truths that come to light in its aftermath—turns her world upside down, Sunny runs again.
In the town of Harmony on San Miguel Island, she takes a new job, learns to ride a motorcycle, and makes some surprising new friends. But the past is never far behind. A startling discovery—along with an emotional and revelatory reunion with her estranged mother—is forcing Sunny to step out from the shadows of yesterday to embrace an uncertain future.
The first 15 people to comment below that they'd like to participate in the show with Judith Hendricks will win a copy of The Laws of Harmony AND a pashmina to wrap around themselves while reading the book!
And don't forget, our show with Elizabeth Noble is tomorrow night, February 17th at 7 pm EST. Listen live and participate in the show here.
