DID YOU KNOW?
The artist of the paperback cover of the 2012 National Book Award Winner  THE ROUND HOUSE is none other than the author’s daughter? “Aza was an artist from day one — a rendingly sensitive baby. Once she had a crayon in her hand, the world was hers,” Erdrich writes on Birchbark Blog. Aza is the artist for all of Erdrich’s reissued books.

No, I did not know this. And I think it is mega cool.

Our own Edan Lepucki judges the opening round of The Morning News’s Tournament of Books — and this match-up is like a Sophie’s Choice.

So far the brackets of the Darien Library are not faring well in this tournament. Almost everybody picked The Yellow Birds (Billy Lynn took the day) and today, almost everybody had The Round House. Only one person is two-for-two! She is one of our children’s librarians. There’s really nothing children’s librarians can’t do.
