Almost two weeks ago, I was lucky enough to attend Putnam cocktails where Putnam brings 3 authors to Chicago to talk about their new books. This was such an awesome event and I am so glad I got to take part in it.
The three authors they brought this year were Sarah Winman (Tin Man), Elisabeth Hyde (Go Ask Fanny), and Leah Stewart (What You Don’t Know About Charlie Outlaw). I have some reading I need to do now! Each of these women are remarkable. Just from reading snippets of each book I know that they have each written works of art. (Full reviews to come once I finish reading them all.) In addition to these wonderful authors, I would like to extend a big thanks for the Putnam staff who were all amazing and open to talking to each and every one of us. I swear that I fall more in love with this industry each and every day.
Every event I go to, I say that I am going to take pictures but I end up getting incredibly distracted and get home with nothing but books to show for being there. I promise I will work on getting better at this!
