Shout-out to Fine Books Writers
Over the years, Fine Books columnists and contributors have published several books of note, typically covering the same subject featured in our magazine: books! Today I’d like to call attention to two of the latest productions from our extended Fine Books family.
Full-time ghostwriter and longtime FB&C contributor Barbara Basbanes Richter just published the first modern English translation of Fanny Reybaud’s 1854 novel of the French Revolution, Mademoiselle de Malepeire. Said Publishers Weekly of it: “This ripping yarn shows why Reybaud had such a huge following during her lifetime. Fans of 19th-century French literature will want to take a look.”
Alex Johnson, our UK correspondent and author of many books about books, offers practical advice and insight in his latest, How to Give Your Child a Lifelong Love of Reading. Published by the British Library, this guidebook is brimming with helpful information and thoughtful enthusiasm; if your child or grandchild is in need of an antidote to today’s screen-centric life, here you go!
