The Algonquin Book Club launces with a series of author Webcasts!

Schuler Books is a big fan of Algonquin, Workman Publishing’s fantastic fiction imprint (they brought you Sara Gruen’s Water For Elephants — about to hit the big screen in its movie adaptation — and A Reliable Wife by Robert Goolick, among others), so we’re very excited that they’ve launched the Algonquin Book Club, a selection of 25 paperback titles, paired with reading group discussion guides, author interviews, essays and other literary goodies.

To kick things off with a bang, they are hosting a series of Webcasts featuring top Algonquin authors interviewed by other amazing authors. Seriously, some of these pairings are really exciting! Check out the list below and make sure to check out the Book Club website!

March 21 Julia Alvarez (In the Time of the Butterflies) interviewed by Edwidge Danticat, author of Brother, I’m Dying

April 26 Sara Gruen (Water for Elephants) interviewed by Kathryn Stockett, author of The Help

August 18 Heidi Durrow (The Girl Who Fell from the Sky) interviewed by Terry McMillan, author of Getting to Happy

October 20 Robert Goolrick (A Reliable Wife) interviewed by Patricia Cornwell, author of Port Mortuary

Early 2012 Lauren Grodstein (A Friend of the Family) interviewed by Stephen King, author of Full Dark, No Stars

    Algonquin publishes fabulous fiction. Try Silas House’s book “A Parchment of Leaves” or “Mudbound” by Hillary Jordan. You can always count on them for good fiction.
