I’m On HelloGiggles!


I couldn’t be more excited to be a new HelloGiggles columnist. I’ll be writing about young adult literature every Saturday.
I’m really honored to be in the company of a lot of women I really admire and part of an environment that fosters and inspires female creativity. And it should go without saying that I’m really happy to be writing about my favorite subject ever. Please check out my article, maybe leave a comment on it if the spirit moves you. This week’s pick is Anastasia Krupnik by Lois Lowry. Oh, and don’t forget to let me know if there are any YA books you’d like me to cover!

The Best Way To Spend Five Dollars

What does five dollars get me? A cheap take out meal? How about a letter from Marc Maron?

The Rumpus is starting Letters In The Mail, and it’s basically the coolest thing I’ve ever heard of. For just 5 dollars a month, you’ll get a letter “almost every week” from authors like “Dave Eggers, Marc Maron, Stephen Elliott, Janet Fitch, Nick Flynn, Margaret Cho, Cheryl Strayed, Wendy MacNaughton, Emily Gould, Tao Lin, and Jonathan Ames.”

Finally. All I’ve ever wanted in my life is a letter from Emily Gould or Dave Eggers. Get out those credit cards! This would be a good gift for a literary person in your life. Or you could just get it for yourself, like I’m doing.

Lady Writer(s)

My friend (our friend!) Lauren wrote a wonderful article about the lovely Emily St. John Mandel for Overflow magazine. Lauren is the best writer/editor (double threat) I know, and Emily St. John Mandel wrote a book I absolutely loved called Last Night In Montreal. Nancy Pearl loved it, and you will too.
Emily St. John Mandel is kind of impossibly beautiful, right?

Right. Check out the article!
