Border Songs a Big Hit at Broadway Books

It was a packed house and a happy house at Broadway Books last night to hear Jim Lynch read from his wonderful second novel, Border Songs. Jim has been a big favorite at BB since the publication of his first novel, The Highest Tide, and people were eager to hear from his new one. Jim read a few passages -- some of which were hysterical, all of which were beautiful -- and talked about the process of writing the book. As a long-time journalist, Jim is well-versed in research and investigation, which served him well in the writing of this book, for which he had to learn about birding, autism, dairy farming, the US/Canadian border, and other subjects. After taking questions from the audience, Jim gladly sat and signed book after book for his enthusiastic audience. And then he signed some more books. All of the books we have in the store, in fact. So come on down and get your very own signed copy of Border Songs, before they fly away. My prediction? Brandon Vanderkool will become as well-loved a literary character as Miles O'Malley has been. And now we know: Jim can write short and tall. A huge thank you to Jim and all who attended for a truly wonderful night!
