Our selection of ebook releases
The Los Angeles Times Festival of Books took place last weekend at the University of South California, and welcomed hundreds of authors, publishers and celebrities alike.
On Friday, the Los Angeles Times Book prize rewarded authors for works of fiction, non-fiction, and other non book-related prizes were awarded, such as the Innovator’s Award, awarded to Margaret Atwood, or the Kirsch Award, awarded to Kevin Starr.
For more information about the prizes, you can refer to the dedicated page on the website of the festival.
Most works rewarded by the LA Times Book Prize are available in ebook on our platform.
You have probably heard of David Sedaris for his famous collection of essays Me Talk Pretty One Day. His new collection of essays released this week is called Let’s Explore Diabetes With Owls, and is “the bold, funny, and mildly offensive return to the Sedaris for which most have long waited” (The Picky Girl), and we could not recommend it any better.
This week, we interviewed American author Alice La Plante. She teaches Creative Writing at Stanford University and San Francisco and lives in Palo Alto, California, with her daughter and her partner. Turn of Mind is her first novel and received multiple literary awards.
“I wanted to explore what Alzheimer’s does to people, relationships, and families”
