The Reading Book Post, September 12th

Hello, everyone! I've been absent for some time, but this September turned out to be very busy, so I might not blog for another two weeks. Fingers crossed that everything will go well! Anyway, let's se what happened in the literary world the previous week.

  • The winner of the Wallace Stevens poetry award has been announced. The prestigious award was given to the American poet Sharon Olds.

  • Tha actor and director Andrew McCarthy is making his literary debut with the YA novel Just Fly Away. You can read an excerpt of the book, while it's set to hit the selves on spring 2017.

  • Alan Moore has announced that he is retiring from creating comic books! He declared that he would like to focus on films and literary novels. I'm curious to see what he'll do next!

  • There only a few stories written by F. Scott Fitzgerlad left unpublished. Well, not for long. The collection of these stories will be called I'd Die For You (And Other Lost Stories) and it will be released on 11 April 2017.

  • JD Salnger's house is becoming a retreat for young artists! Illustrator Harry Bliss has bought it and it will be offered as a workplace to all those who desire to be away from everything and create intimacy with their work.

  • Looking for a bookish present? Well, these Pokemon bookmarks are more than cute! Can I have one (or all of them)?

  • Can You Pass A Difficult 12th Grade Literature Exam? Test your knowledge of the classics with this test! I'm glad that I passed, but I'd say that I need a revision! How did you do?
