Heidi Durrow & Terry McMillan: Algonquin Book Club event, 8/18

Our next Algonquin Book Club event with Heidi Durrow and Terry McMillan is just about three weeks away! To help kick things off, we’re giving away 20 copies of Durrow’s critically acclaimed, best-selling novel The Girl Who Fell from the Sky to those who haven’t read it and who want to tune in to the live webcast on August 18, 7:00pm PST/10:00pm EST. All you have to do is leave a comment here or on our Facebook page to enter. We’ll notify the winners by early next week. Good luck!

Be sure to check out our Algonquin Book Club site for an original essay by Durrow about The Girl Who Fell from the Sky, a description of the book, bios of the author and interviewer, a reading group guide, book club tips, and some culinary treats related to the book–recipe pairings submitted by Heidi Durrow herself. The food looks amazing!
