Learning that The Year of Goodbyes is on recommended summer reading lists at schools and libraries across the country this season--what a wonderful feeling.
Places such as: Old Town, Maine. Orleans, Massachussetts. Southold, New York. Demarest, New Jersey. Carroll County, Maryland. Martin County, Florida. The Iowa City Consolidated School District. Fremont, Nebraska. And more!
And I don't want to leave out Mrs. Dalloway's bookstore in Berkeley, California. Thanks to the staff there for spreading the word.
I love thinking of this book in the hands of readers from sea to shining sea!
