Emma Straub to Tour with The Magnetic Fields

What if novelists opened for rock bands?

Novelist Emma Straub (pictured) will tour with Magnetic Fields in November, reading from her debut novel, Laura Lamont’s Life in Pictures. Click here for ticket information.

Straub wrote about the upcoming dates here: “This November, I will be hitting the road again with my dear friends The Magnetic Fields … this time, as the opening act. I’ll be reading before their shows in Detroit, Pittsburgh, and DC! Expect to hear a short section of the novel as well as some other fun pieces … The above photo was taken on the last night of the first US leg of the Tour at the Bottom of the Sea. You can see all of our adventures here.”

Straub was our guest on the Morning Media Menu last year, talking about how authors can reach out to bookstores and how she designed a book research house swap. Press play below to listen. (Via Maud Newton)
