Release Day is a recurring blog feature to give a shout-out to Tenner books on their official debut day. Today, there are two: The Secret Year, a young adult novel by Jennifer R. Hubbard. If you scroll waaaayyy back in the blog, you'll see this is one of the books that first caught my eye when I joined the Tenners. I still think it sounds fantastic and, now that it's out, I can finally read it!
To celebrate the release, Jenn is doing an online launch party on her blog through the end of today. Hurry!
Irene will celebrate her debut, quietly, with family and a local quilting group, where she will honor her seamstress mom and talk about how this novel, at its heart is a love poem to her mother. Her "official" book launch party will be January 10 at North Shelby Library (Birmingham, Alabama), where she'll celebrate with actual quilters from Gee's Bend (and a quilt!), without whom there would be no LEAVING GEE'S BEND.
Congrats, Jenn and Irene!
