Will Schwalbe
Books for Living
Wednesday, January 25 at 7 PM

Hello bookstore people!

A confession: I believe in preaching to the choir. Not only do I like books, I like books about books. Our next author event is with a man who's spent his life around books. He's worked in New York publishing for most of his career. And around five years ago, he had a huge hit with his debut memoir, The End of Your Life Book Club. I heard all the good reviews of his book at the time and I thought, I don’t want to read that.

Then I was at a conference in New York, and I heard Will Schwalbe speak. He was wonderful! Warm, funny, and passionate about his subject matter. He won me over that day, and when I saw that he was touring for his latest, Books for Living, I knew I wanted to share both the book and the man with you.

Books for Living is a sort of memoir through books. Will writes of books that have taught lessons, that have connected him to other people, and some that are simply great reads. This is a love letter to literature. You and I, we’re bookstore people. Will Schwalbe is preaching to the choir. I hope you’ll join me in welcoming him to BookShop West Portal on Wednesday, January 25th at 7:00pm.
