News:

The Race for Paris will be in bookstores August 11! It's already been named one of the BBC's 10 Best beach reads of 2015!

The Wednesday Sisters was named one of "25 Essential Best Friend Novels"—along with the likes of The Three Musketeers, Harry Potter, Michael Chabon's The Mysteries of Pittsburg, Amy Tan's The Joy Luck Club, and Mary McCarthy's The Group—in the December 5, 2014 issue of Entertainment Weekly.

Meet Meg in Person at ...

I would love to meet you in person, or to see you again if we're old pals. This time around, I'll be traveling with a slide show in hand, so I can share the stories of the real women journalists who inspired The Race for Paris—and a few shots of France and the gorgeous city that is Paris, too.

I spend enough time in my local indie bookstores (Books Inc. Palo Alto and Kepler's Books) that you can usually get signed copies of my novels—or pre-order a signed copy of The Race for Paris!—from them. (If you call and they're out of signed stock, they can contact me and I'll fix that!)

And I had so many questions about the gorgeous (and shockingly comfortable and versatile) yellow dress and navy blue jacket I wore on tour for The Wednesday Daughters that I promised folks I'd post a link here to the website of the designer, Camilla Olson Design.
