“Thank you Miss America! Four words I was 100% sure I would never string together in this lifetime.”
James Patterson announced this morning that he’s launching a children’s book imprint called jimmy patterson. The imprint “will be unwaveringly focused on one goal: turning kids into lifelong readers. We want to make reading fun for kids – through stories and voices that speak to them and expand their world. We want to make books available to kids – through teacher scholarships, bookstore funding, school library support, and book donations. We want every kid who finishes a jimmy book to say: ‘Please give me another book.'”
Patterson will speak for the first time about his mission at BookExpo America’s Hachette Book Group booth (#2919) at 9:30 A.M. today.
Capitol Hill Books owner Jim Toole has banned several words from his store, including “awesome,” “perfect” and “Amazon.” NPR ran this feature on him yesterday.
