We are excited to welcome Greer Macallister back for the paperback release of her novel WOMAN 99! The book is a vivid historical thriller about a young woman whose quest to free her sister from an infamous insane asylum risks her sanity, her safety, and her life. Rich in detail, deception, and revelation, Woman 99 honors the fierce women of the past, born into a world that denied them power but underestimated their strength.

Join us at One More Page to learn more about Emily and T.S. Eliot from award-winning writer Sara Fitzgerald. Her new novel, THE POET'S GIRL, arrives as Hale’s own gift to Eliot scholars—the more than 1,000 letters the poet wrote her over the course of their lifetimes—is opened after a 50-year embargo. THE POET'S GIRL tells the story of a woman whose own story will never be fully known: the woman behind one of Eliot’s most treasured poems and a woman whose greatest act of love was to bury her side of their story. In the spirit of The Paris Wife and Loving Frank, THE POET'S GIRL brings to life another little-known woman behind a famous man.

We are thrilled to welcome author Andrea Tang at One More Page Books for the launch of her novel, REBELWING! Set in a wonderfully inventive near-future Washington, D.C., this hilarious, defiant debut sparkles with wit and wisdom, deftly exploring media consumption, personal freedoms, and the weight of one life as Pru, rather reluctantly, takes to the skies.
