Spotlight on . . . Pennsylvania Authors

Welcome to a new feature at Beth Fish Reads. From time to time I will be spotlighting authors from Pennsylvania. The posts will take many forms: interviews, book reviews, link posts, wish list posts, and more. I'll be focusing on authors of all genres and writers from colonial times up to the present.

This feature is part of the Literary Road Trip project sponsored by Michelle from GalleySmith. To learn more about the project and to claim a state, visit the Literary Road Trip page. EDIT: The Literary Road Trip spans the globe: Participants are not restricted to picking a U.S. state.

Publicists and Readers: Please feel free to suggest a Pennsylvania author you would like me feature.

Authors: If you are a Pennsylvania author, please do not be shy: Leave a comment or email me, and I will add you to my list.

Thanks to Michelle for starting this great journey.

You are on top of things! I actually made a contact on Twitter this morning and have already exchanged a few emails with a SC author!

YAY! Welcome!

What a great idea! I will look forward to hearing more about literary fun in PA! I would think you shouldn't have any problems finding thing to spotlight.

I'll be looking forward to these posts and getting to know the literary landscape of PA. What a fun idea.

Excellent idea! My family roots are heavy in PA but i admit, don't really know what the state put forth in terms of literature. Should be interesting!

This is a great idea. I hadn't realized it The Literary Road Trip would be a long-term feature type of thing - what fun! I should go and stake my claim, once I finish up these deadlines.

I'm really looking forward to this, being a Philly girl!

I think this is a really neat idea! I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

Yay! I'm so glad to hear you are joining in! This is going to be fabulous!

I'm joining in too. I staked out Kansas. I have followed your lead on a couple of projects (Books About Food and Everything Austen) and have had fun with them. Now when I look at an author I'm trying to find out where they come from. Fun. And thanks for leading the way.

I will follow you blog :)

Can't wait to see who you feature! I saw a billboard today in Philly about a book/author and can't remember it now!

Serena 7/24/09, 10:07 AM  

this is a fantastic idea!

What a lovely way to fill out our state from corner to corner with information for readers! I'd love to talk with you about my new fantasy novel, the first in the Clan Elves of the Bitterroot series. I'm an author in Meadville, PA.
