Please join us on Thursday June 20th at 7 pm as we welcome to the Bookshop Amy Brill, discussing her new novel, The Movement of Stars.
Amy Brill's event on June 20 will be introduced by Tracy Winn, author of Mrs. Somebody Somebody, a collection of linked short stories set in Lowell, and perennial favorite on our Book Group Selections table display.
Amy Brill is a writer and producer. Her articles, essays, and short stories have appeared in numerous publications including Salon, Guernica, and Time Out New York, and have been anthologized in Before and After: Stories from New York and Lost and Found. A Pushcart Prize nominee, she has been awarded fellowships in fiction by the Edward Albee Foundation, Jentel, the Millay Colony, Fundacion Valparaiso, and the Constance Saltonstall Foundation. In 2005, she was the Robert and Charlotte Baron Visiting Artist Fellow at the American Antiquarian Society in Worcester, MA.
As a broadcast journalist, she received a George Foster Peabody Award for writing MTV’s The Social History of HIV, and she researched, wrote, or produced over a dozen other projects for the network’s pro-social initiatives. She has also produced online projects fostering public dialogue on arts, culture, and society for PBS, The New York Foundation for the Arts, and other organizations. A native New Yorker, Amy lives in Brooklyn with her husband. They have two small daughters, neither of whom can yet tie her own shoes.
One Thursday each month, a group of SUN loving readers will be
gathering at the Bookshop.
But these SUN worshippers, unlike those of the UV rite, are dedicated readers of SUN Magazine.
This is an open customer-led discussion group, and all are welcome to join at anytime. Our discussions are lively and camaraderie great.
Take a 90 minute break from your usual mayhem and join us. An additional meet-up has been scheduled for July 18, and issues of The SUN are available for purchase at the Bookshop. For additional information, please contact info.concordBookshop@gmail.com
