GalleyChat Roundup, August, 2023

Tuesday, August 8th, 2023

This month’s episode of GalleyChat marked a special anniversary. During our very first chat, in April 2010, one of the titles getting attention was jean Kwok’s debut, Girl in Translation. Thirteen years later, her upcoming fourth book, The Leftover Woman, (HarperCollins/Morrow, Oct, 2023) is also a hit with GalleyChatter, many of them still with us thirteen years later and some got to meet her at ALA. See quotes from GalleyChat below.

HOT, Vicki Nesting @VNesting, “THE LEFTOVER WOMAN by Jean Kwok is getting rave reviews all over the place so I’d be a fool not to jump on this one. And don’t you love this cover?!” — JULY, Mara @mrlzbth, “I read THE LEFTOVER WOMAN by Jean Kwok right before hearing her speak at ALA and absolutely loved it. A really moving and well-written story of two women whose lives dramatically collide. Definitely check this one out for LibraryReads voting!” — LMR, Virginia Stanley @VStan523 @JeanKwok brought her A-game to ALA! She gave a touching speech to a packed house about her new book, THE LEFTOVER WOMAN.” — JUNE, Janet Lockhart@HartGami, “What makes a good mother?@JeanKwok brilliantly examines that question in THE LEFTOVER WOMAN. This title will be book club catnip.” — APRIL, librarylovefest @librarylovefest, “THE LEFTOVER WOMAN by @JeanKwok! A gripping mystery about motherhood & identity that follows two very different women who eventually collide. So much to say about this book, & so few characters!”
