News & Notes is a weekly Saturday post featuring book- and publishing-related news, links to interesting articles and opinion pieces, and other cool stuff
Today’s post is short because it’s been a really rough week, work-wise, and I haven’t had much time for prowling the internet looking for links. Sorry!
- Sinclair Lewis’s It Can’t Happen Here sells out after election (GalleyCat)
- B&N Second Quarter Sales Fall 4% (Publishers Weekly)
- “Declaration in Support of Children” signed by almost 700 children’s book creators (The Brown Bookshelf)
- The Importance of Being an Earnest Beta Reader (Priya Sridhar, for BookRiot)
Book & Movie Announcements
- Disney planning a live-action movie about Christopher Robin grown up (Hollywood Reporter)
- Ten Excellent Historical Romance Series (BookRiot)
That’s it for this week!

I do love your News & Notes Lark! I think it’s interesting that they’re doing a live action movie of Christopher Robin grown up. I wonder how it will turn out, I’m going to have to keep that movie in mind and keep checking up on it as it progresses.

Thank you for posting even when you’re swamped! I never read Beverly Jenkins and since I’m exploring HF I should give her a try to enrich my reading pool with Reconstruction Period titles.
Nice saying and image above too: I’m currently switching up between English Breakfast/Irish Breakfast/Red Rose and Jasmine Green tea (after my 2 cups of coffee early in the a.m.)!
