Paperback Release, Talks and the BBC

{ED88BAAA-F780-4F76-AA87-A992A6D9745C}

Some new developments in the past few weeks:

The paperback for Butterfly in the Typewriter will be released at the end of March with a new cover as pictured above. Look closely–JKT’s face is made of typewriter letters.  Pretty cool, I think.  With the release of the paperback this means your last chance to pick up a hardcover edition draws near.

On March 11 at 11 a.m. EST (16:00 GMT) the BBC Radio 4 will air the show “Curse of the Dunces.”  I participated in this production. It will be of particular interest to those of you who are intrigued by the attempts to adapt Confederacy into a film.

I have two more talks scheduled. At the end of March I will be at the Virginia Festival of the Book in Charlottesville, VA. Our panel will be at the University of Virginia Bookstore. The last time I was there I was buying books for my last graduate seminar, so it will be quite meaningful to return to sign my own book.

I will also be speaking at the Gaithersburg Book Festival in Maryland on May 18. More details to follow.

Other dates can be seen here.

Lastly, I am happy to announce Butterfly has been nominated for the Library of Virginia 2013 Literary Award. Finalists will be announced this summer.
