AUTHOR CLAIRE MESSUD will be at the Library of Congress National Book Festival tomorrow, Saturday, September 2, at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. She will also be at Politics and Prose on Sunday, September 10. And at the Free Library of Philadelphia on the 28th, with author Salman Rushdie ($6 in-house simulcast tickets are still available).
After you read our excerpt from The Burning Girl, you can purchase the book at the festival. Or, if you’re feeling lucky, you can email us to see if you can get one of two copies the publisher, W.W. Norton, is giving away. Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, with BURNING in the subject field. We’ll get back to the winners to get your mailing address. Good luck!
