Last week I wrote that we were just getting back into the swing of things with the new school term beginning and all of our students returning to campus. And we’ve certainly had to dive right in at Ooligan in order to get ready for what feels like a dozen literary festivals and trade shows this week.
Wordstock, Day One took place today, including a reading and Q&A by Ruth in the morning. Sharing the McMenamin’s main event stage at 11 a.m. with Francesca Lia Block, Ruth surprised the audience by appearing in a tie-dye ensemble reminiscent of 1960s fashion. If you missed the chance to pick up her brand new book today, be sure to stop by the Ooligan table tomorrow and get your copy.
The initial print run of the books was delivered to Ooligan just yesterday—perfect timing for Wordstock and PNBA. Also right on time for these events, we have brand new TND bookmarks designed by Robyn Best, the Ooligan staffer who completed the interior design for the book. In addition to the new collateral, we are in the process of completing the final proofs to ensure that the ebook will be ready to go by the launch date.
Check back next week for updates about the official launch in November.
