As a one-time publicist and a forever fan of books and reading, I can’t speak highly enough about Blue Heron Books and the community it rallies around visiting authors who, truly, are treated like celebrities. It’s no exaggeration to say that as someone who has attended her fair share of readings, Blue Heron’s are among the most magical and engaging. —
