Laurie R. King giveaway

Laurie R. King loves libraries and is showing it by giving away copies of her Mary Russell books!

“The theme of this year’s American Library Association celebration is Lives change @ your library. So that’s what Team LRK is celebrating as well.  As you must know by now, I love libraries. I use libraries by the cubic meter, by the hundredweight, by the hour.  Using any measure, libraries shaped me and continue to shape my writing.

So this spring, where I am also celebrating my own great good fortune in twenty years of Mary Russell, I’m giving away some of her books.

If you know a library that sponsors book clubs, and can make use of fifteen copies of the same Russell title, send us the library’s name.  We’ll do a drawing every week between now and the publication date for the 20th Anniversary Edition of THE BEEKEEPER'S APPRENTICE, May 27. Show your library you love them, and let me send them some books.

Send your library nomination, to with the subject line Libraries.”

2013 Cooking & Crafting Series + FREE Books for your Library!

cookbooks & craft books

November and December bring some of our favorite holidays. While we like to focus on giving you great news about our books, awards, conference information, and all things cuddly and small, we also think it's the perfect time to share our cooking and craft books with you. 

Periodically throughout November and December, we'll feature a recipe or a craft from one of our many titles, in the hope that you might find it useful to share with your patrons, or get ideas for yourself, whether you're entertaining, hosting, or gift-giving. 

One other delightful bonus: FREE BOOKS! Just in time for the December holidays, we'll be giving away two bundles of cookbooks and craft books featured in the posts to a pair of lucky winners!

To enter the giveaway, simply email from your professional/library-issued e-mail address (subject: Cooking & Crafts) and your library’s mailing address. Submit your entry by Sunday, December 16th to be placed in the random drawing. (Make sure to check the rules & regulations after the recipe.)

UPDATE 12/16: Congratulations to our winners, Sarah Bourg of Hamilton North Public Library in Cicero, IN and Pam Aghababian of Ashland Public Library in Ashland, MA!

white bean & sausage casseroleOur first featured recipe is from KEEPERS: Two Home Cooks Share Their Tried-and-True Weeknight Recipes and the Secrets to Happiness in the Kitchen by Kathy Brennan and Caroline Campion. 

Anne was happy to fire up the oven in her kitchen on a cold Sunday to cook this Sausage and White Bean Gratin casserole made with sausage (duh), white beans (double duh), spinach, wine (mmm!), and a butter/breadcrumb topping (double mmm!).
