Writers Talking about Their Parents on Tour

In Apple, Tree: Writers on Their Parents (September, 2019), editor Lise Funderburg gathers twenty-five outstanding writers to deftly explore a trait they’ve inherited from a parent, reflecting on how it affects the lives they lead today.

In a starred-review, Publishers Weekly called it a “sparkling anthology . . . These essays, in addition to being resonant in their own right, will also move readers to recollect stories of their own parents.” Meanwhile Laurie Hertzel at the Star Tribune described it as “. . . a wonderful array of entertaining and very different stories” and Bethane Patrick at Washington Post listed Apple, Tree in her Top 10 Books to Read in September.

Bookstores across the country will host contributors to read from, discuss, and sign books in New York, Washington D.C., Portland, San Francisco, and Philadelphia:


We hope you can make it to one of these events, or find the book at a local bookstore near you. Editor Lise Funderburg shares a taste of what’s inside on Twitter:
