About Atria Salon Series
This is the third installment of the Atria Literary Salon Series. The previous two celebrated authors Lauren Weisberger and Nicolle Wallace. Returning to the grand old tradition of places like the Algonquin Hotel where people would gather for stimulating conversation, Judith Curr, Executive Vice President and Publisher of Atria Books, launched the Literary Salon Series to bring together authors, editors and media for an evening of stimulating conversation and literary style.
I haven't read much by Picoult, but I enjoyed CHANGE OF HEART. (I could've sword I reviewed it here, but can't find the post.) I'm excited about SING YOU HOME since it is a novel about a same sex couple by a big author. Hopefully it will reach as wide an audience as her previous novels.
