This #BookFaceFriday is leaving on a jet plane!
Fasten your seat belts, stow your carry-on, and get ready to take off with #BookFaceFriday! Expect (literary) turbulence with “Western Alliances: A Novel” by Wilton Barnhardt (St. Martin’s Press, 2023). It’s one of two of Barnhardt’s satirical novels available as Audiobooks in Nebraska OverDrive Libraries. If you like dark humor and family drama, you’re in for a wild ride!
“Fans of HBO’s Succession will be attracted to the backstabbing and debauchery on gaudy display in Barnhardt’s campy, steamy social satire.”– Booklist
This week’s bookface was shot “on location” as some of our Nebraska Library Commission staff made their way to the National Book Festival in Washington, D.C.! Check out the festival schedule, featured authors, and highlights for past events on the Library of Congress’s event page!
