Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday! MM was created by Marcia, who graciously hosted it for a long, long time, before turning it into a touring event. Mailbox Monday has now returned to its permanent home where you can link to your MM post.
I got two non-fiction books last week that are coming out in September and they both look fantastic:
Chasing Portraits: A Great-Granddaughter's Quest for Her Lost Art Legacy by Elizabeth Rynecki. The author's great-grandfather was an artist in Poland who created over 800 paintings and sculptures before he died in a WWII concentration camp. This memoir tells the story of how the author spent decades rebuilding his collected work after it was lost during the war and dispersed all over the world.
Elizabeth Rynecki is launching Chasing Portraits at Powell's City of Books in downtown Portland on Tuesday, September 6, 2016 at 7:30.
All Set for Black, Thanks: A New Look at Mourning by Miriam Weinstein. This is a touching and funny collection of essays -- part memoir, part advice -- about dealing with loss and mourning.
All Set for Black, Thanks is available for pre-order now and launches September 13. Miriam Weinstein has a series of readings and book events coming up this fall on the east coast.
