We’ve already gushed a bit about our excitement for novelist Jennifer Miller’s mission to set a world record by meeting with 100 book clubs in a single month. It’s definitely ambitious, and maybe a little bit nuts, but she’s already almost halfway to her goal!
Our team tallied up the count this morning and we’re blown away by the progress she’s made in just a few short weeks. With a few local events on the East coast, and a bunch of video chats with groups in other areas of the country, we’re seeing supporters pop up all over the map — in Nashville, Plano, Duxbury and Richmond, to name a few cities, as well as right here in Brooklyn.
And to be honest, we shouldn’t be surprised. Jen pulled off some creative (and thrifty!) book promo stunts when The Year of The Gadfly came out in hardcover last year, including selling copies of her book and giving away free cookies at novelade stands on the sidewalks of New York City.
If your book club, library, local bookstore, friends, colleagues, neighbors, classmates, cousins, aunts, etc. want to go down in history as record-setting legends, let us know. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt is even giving away one free signed copy of the book to each group that signs up!
