Welcome back! Autumn is creeping closer every day here in the great Midwest, and I thought I’d kick off a new season of blogging by sharing with you some exciting news!  Juliette Gordon Low: The Remarkable Founder of the Girl Scouts will be released in paperback by Penguin Press at the end of January 2013….with a new cover. Here it is! What do you think?

Reveal! The paperback cover!

If for some reason you don’t own the hardback, then this paperback is for you! If you’re in a book club, I hope that you’ll consider this discussion and invite me to Skype in to answer questions! You can pre-order the paperback from your local independent bookstore, and from amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.com.

New cover, new season, new talks on the horizon–including the State Fair of Texas (hosted by the Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas) and the Georgia Literary Festival on beautiful Jekyll Island. As the centennial year wraps up, I’ll be speaking–on 12 March 2013–in Wichita, Kansas, at Watermark Books. I look forward to your ideas for the blog, your comments on the book, and your presence should I make it to your home town. If you would like me to come speak about Juliette Gordon Low at your business or university or  in some other capacity, click on the “contact” tab above and give Anna Baldasty a shout at the Penguin Speakers Bureau.

Back next Friday with more on the remarkable life of Juliette Gordon Low!
