HOW WE LIVE NOW Shortlisted for Community-Wide Reading Program

COVER, How We Live Now

Do you know about those programs in which an entire community or campus or freshman class is encouraged to all read the same book? I just learned that How We Live Now has been shortlisted for one of those programs in Michigan. I haven’t been told which one.

COVER, How We Live Now

 

If you buy a copy of How We Live Now: Redefining Home and Family in the 21st Century (a new one, not one you already have), I’ll send you a free copy of one of my other books. Shipping is also free if your shipping address is within the continental U.S. If it is not, I’m happy to pay the first $3.22 (what it will cost me to ship to most US addresses) if you will pay the rest.
