Ken Schneck Kristen Lepionka is returning to Gathering Volumes to introduce us to the second book in her Roxane Weary Mystery Series, What You Want to See.
"That rare and precious thing — a sequel as good as — or even better than — the outstanding first in the series. It’s wise, knowing, propulsive, and perfectly pitched. Lepionka is a major new talent.” — Lee Child
Lara Lillibridge is visiting Gathering Volumes to introduce us to her memoir Girlish: Growing Up in a Lesbian Home.
"Lillibridge’s story is not told in first person nor does she ever use her name, referring to herself throughout simply as ‘Girl.’ This lends an almost clinical air to the story, which, Lillibridge writes, is not the one everyone wants her to tell. . . . and, besides, she concludes, ‘I want to be the most interesting character in my own story.’ And so she is.” —Booklist
