The ridge

Authors in the News

The RidgeLauren Myracle writes about being un-nominated for the National Book in the Huffington Post. Put in a really tough position, Myracle comes across as funny, tender and sympathetic. And apparently I wasn't the only one who added Shine to my Goodreads list.

Earlier this week, local law enforcement in Ohio was forced to shoot 49 large animals after their owner opened gates and cages prior to killing himself. As a follow up, NPR interviews local author Michael Koryta, the author of The Ridge which includes a significant plot line involving a large cat sanctuary in Kentucky. The interview covers challenges of regulating exotic animal ownership.

Michael Koryta Author Event

The RidgeDon't miss your chance to see local mystery and suspense author, Michael Koryta at Barnes and Noble next week to promote his newest book - The Ridge. He will be there on Monday, June 6 at 7:00 p.m. Full event details available on the Barnes and Noble website, and also from Michael's personal blog too.

Stephen King wrote an article for the most recent EW magazine (June 3/10) entitled "My Summer Reading List". He disagrees with the notion that summer reading should include heavy titles such as War and Peace, but promises that none of his recommendations "will insult your intelligence, but all will take you away to new and interesting places full of excitement, danger, and maybe a few laughs." Of the twelve titles on the list, Michael Koryta's next most recent book, The Cypress House is included! King says, "[g]angsters, a silent but heroic drifter with second sight, and a whopper of a Florida hurricane. How can you go wrong?"

Love the international buzz for this great local author! Be sure to catch him next week!
