Friends of the Library
Book Feature - Friends of the Library by Susan Cushman
HBL Note: It isn’t often that I get to work with authors directly. I’m usually communicating with them through their publicists. So when an author reaches out to me directly, I get really excited. Susan started her email by saying she purchased The Editor by Steven Rowley based on my review. We got to talking about her books and she mentioned that there was a vote on her publisher’s website for the book cover of her upcoming novel Friends of the Library. This was the first time I had the opportunity to weigh in on a book cover selection, which was a lot of fun for me! That was back in April, I’ve been excited to share this book with you for months.

From the publisher:
WHEN ADELE COVINGTON becomes an author in her sixties, she goes on a book tour to speak to the Friends of the Library groups in ten small towns in her home state of Mississippi. Chasing her personal demons through the Christ-haunted South of her childhood, Adele befriends an eclectic group of wounded people and decides to tell their stories. From Eupora to Meridian, from a budding artist with an abusive husband to a seven-year-old with a rare form of cancer, each story contains elements of hope and healing and honors the heart, soul, and history of the Magnolia State.
