Today we're really excited to have the author of a new and exciting dystopian book, Drought, with us! Pam Bachorz is talking to us about a couple of books that she is looking forward to reading!
PAM'S BOOK PICKS
Three Books for me:
First, I've just started John Truby's THE ANATOMY OF STORY, which is a how-to writing book I've heard lots of authors talking about. I'm always looking for ways to improve as a writer and understand the techniques of great writing.
Second, I've got Paolo Bacigalupi's THE WINDUP GIRL on my to-be-read pile. It's an adult sci-fi book that won the 2010 Nebula Award, as well as tying for the 2010 Hugo Award. I want to read the best, to learn, but it also just sounds like a very cool book. And of course this author is known in the teen world for his SHIP BREAKER, which just won the Printz!
Third, I also have L.M. Montgomery's THE BLYTHES ARE QUOTED, which was pubbed in 2009 as a sort of sequel to RILLA OF INGLESIDE. It's supposed to be rather different from her other work and I'm very curious to read it, as a huge fan of her novels and short stories.
Thanks so much Pam, for joining us today! We're reading Drought right now and we're really excited to see where it goes!
