Emma Straub Book Tour Visits 12 Locations from 12 Short Stories

Rather than following the traditional book tour circuit, author Emma Straub will visit twelve different locations around the world from her book of short stories–recording the journey at this blog.

Here’s more about the tour: “There are twelve stories in Other People We Married, and each story takes place in a different location. Every month for the next year, I will read a story in its location, or as close as I can get. This blog will follow my travels, my snacks, my impulse-buys, and more. For bonus points, send me a photo of OPWM in an exotic locale, and I will post it here, and send you a postcard in return.”

Last year we spoke with David Daley, founder of Five Chapters and publisher of Straub’s book.
