In the news
The Louise Brooks Society was in the news today. Shelf Awareness, a book industry newsletter, ran a short piece about Laura Moriarty's author event at the Watermark bookstore in Wichita, Kansas. The piece, which links to the LBS blog, is depicted below. (Many followed the link. Traffic to this LBS blog post was four times greater than usual.]
Louise Brooks was also in the news. The New York Times ran its third article on Moriarty's new novel. This one, "Blunt Memories of Celluloid Life" by Janet Maslin (she had also penned an earlier review), looks back to Brooks' own 1982 book, Lulu in Hollywood. Many also read that piece. When I checked late in the afternoon, Lulu in Hollywood was #1 on Amazon for Books > Arts & Photography > Performing Arts > Theater.
