Register Now for Hachette Hot Reads: Summer Fun with Grand Central, Little, Brown, & More

This summer, you’ll definitely be reading Susan Jane Gilman’s The Ice Cream Queen of Orchard Street, a debut novel following Gilman’s bitingly funny nonfiction best sellers (e.g., gilman Register Now for Hachette Hot Reads: Summer Fun with Grand Central, Little, Brown, & MoreHypocrite in a Pouffy White Dress), and Joshua Ferris’s To Rise Again at a Decent Hour, the National Book Award finalist’s eagerly awaited third novel. And despite some serious subject matter, you’ll sometimes be laughing, if you like humor with a whole lot of substance and a little bit of  edge. I know because I’ve been reading both novels in preparation for the forthcoming webcast “Hachette Hot Reads: Summer Fun with Grand Central, Little, Brown & More,” scheduled for April 29 at 3:00 p.m. (ET).

On the webcast, I’ll be interviewing each author individually, then initiating a three-way conversation with their editors, Helen Atsma, Senior Editor, Grand Central, and Reagan Arthur, Little, Brown, Senior Vice President and Publisher, respectively. Atsma and Arthur will also introduce forthcoming titles of interest—what about an ex-pat debut novel from an O. Henry Prize winner (Brittani Sonnenberg’s Home Leave) or another thriller from a New York Times best-selling author (Michael Koryta’s Those Who Wish Me Dead)? Finally, we’ll wrap up with Hachette’s Adult Library Marketing Team—Ali Coughlin, Melissa Nicholas, and Karen Torres—who will introduce more books from Hachette’s wide-ranging imprints. Anyone for Mariano Rivera’s memoir, The ferris Register Now for Hachette Hot Reads: Summer Fun with Grand Central, Little, Brown, & MoreCloser?

So if you’re interested in finding out how Gilman takes little Malka Treynovsky from shtetl to “The Ice Cream Queen of America” or why someone is stealing the identity of sharp-tongued and obsessive dentist Paul O’Rourke, join us for an hour of good book discussion. Remember, if you can’t make date, the webcast is archived.
