We have several other titles coming soon (they have sponsorship and are awaiting processing and cataloging), and, we are looking for a sponsor for Under the Wide and Starry Sky by Nancy Horan, a novel of the “unconventional” courtship and marriage of Robert Louis Stevenson and his wife Fanny. Lots of good discussion with this title! If your library or group is interested, please contact me at email@example.com.
