Door to Door with Lisa Harding, author of BRIGHT BURNING THINGS

The Library Love Fest Team welcomed author Lisa Harding to Door to Door!

Lisa discussed her upcoming novel BRIGHT BURNING THINGS.

About BRIGHT BURNING THINGS (on sale 12/7/21):
A rising international literary star makes her American debut with this visceral, tender, and brave portrait of addiction, recovery, and motherhood, as harrowing and intense as SHUGGIE BAIN.

“Through Harding’s realistic writing, one feels the profound desperation and pain of addiction. Readers won’t soon forget this viscerally raw immersion into addiction”
—Library Journal ⭐️ Review

"In Irish writer Harding’s blistering U.S. debut, a former London stage actress finds her life in Dublin derailed by disappointment and alcoholism.... This unflinching portrait of a troubled, tender soul takes readers to the depths of the human heart."
—Publishers Weekly ⭐️ Review

Laura Lippman's 'Dream Girl' Is The Latest Thriller To Center On Stolen Stories

Laura Lippman's DREAM GIRL was reviewed by Maureen Corrigan on today’s FRESH AIR! “DREAM GIRL is ideal cutting-edge, socially-conscious entertainment for late summer. . . . Packed with social criticism, satire, ghosts and narrative turns of the screw, Lippman's DREAM GIRL is indeed a dream of a novel.” n.pr/3CWBZl3

Many of this year's mystery and suspense novels explore literary appropriation — characters in positions of privilege laying their sticky mitts on stories that don't belong to them.

I love it when something I’ve researched turns up in unexpected places. Well that just happened on one of my favorite TV shows: Poldark. On Sunday’s night’s episode Ross Poldark is in the House of Commons and mentions that William Wilberforce was speaking against slavery. My ears perked up because in my new book BURIED LIVES: THE ENSLAVED PEOPLE OF GEORGE WASHINGTON’S MOUNT VERNON, I have a drawing of the slave ship Brookes. How does this connect to Poldark? In reality, when Wilberforce was arguing in Parliament for the abolition of slavery, he used a wooden model of the Brookes to show the cruelty of slavery. Ultimately slavery was abolished in Britain-and the slave ship Brookes played a part in it. Here is the link to see the actual model William Wilberforce used:
Binding sounds interesting and up my alley.
Awesome! #2018vla
