Conversations with Concord Authors 2023, Wednesday, April 5, 2023, Bank of NH Stage, Concord, NH
I’ll join four other local authors to talk about our books, other books we love, and the writing life. NHPR veteran journalist and talk-show host Laura Knoy will moderate; it’s like a mini book festival in one evening. Event is free but you need a ticket to enter.
Here’s the description from Capitol Center for the Arts:
“The greater Concord area is a creative landscape that includes many gifted authors, writing in every possible genre. Following in the footsteps of last year’s memorable evening…Come join the remarkable Laura Knoy as she talks with some of those authors. It will be an entertaining evening filled with humor, heart and inspiration. You may even discover your own “inner writer” in the process.” Presented by The Duprey Companies, Concord Public Library, NH Writers Project, and Gibson’s Bookstore.

Popsugar named THE WRONG KIND OF WOMAN to its top books of October. Link here:
And BookPage and Booklist reviewed THE WRONG KIND OF WOMAN!
Here’s a little from the BookPage review:
“….Fans of the FX on Hulu miniseries “Mrs. America” will find the same feminist themes addressed in The Wrong Kind of Woman. Crow has tapped into a less flashy character of second wave feminism: the reluctant but curious wife and mother. The book, however, isn’t preachy, and the few strongly opinionated characters aren’t portrayed as necessarily likable.
The Wrong Kind of Woman explores the sublimation of self within a marriage, sexism in the workplace and the pros and cons of activism versus revolution. These are heady topics, but this slow burn of a novel proves a perfect place to give them serious thought.”
And here’s a little from the Booklist review (may be available only to subscribers):
“Readers will soar through the smoothly written prose and empathize with the strong characters. Suggest for fans of Jennifer Weiner’s Mrs. Everything.”
Publishers Weekly review:
Publishers Weekly called The Wrong Kind of Woman “an entrancing debut” and “engrossing reading” in its review.
