Free Book Giveaway: SERENA by Ron Rash

Since its publication last year, Ron Rash’s Serena has garnered tremendous critical praise. The New Yorker calls it, “a tightly knit tale of industrial development, greed, and betrayal ” that “recalls both John Steinbeck and Cormac McCarthy.” Proving that there’s still room on the bestseller list for real literature, Serena was a PEN/Faulkner finalist and a New York Times bestseller.

Aside from being the author of three other prize-winning novels, Ron Rash is the John Parris Chair in Appalachian Studies at Western Carolina University. Thanks in part to the author’s reputation and the book’s North Carolina setting; Serena has been very popular in colleges in the Southeast. Last week, in fact, I received the good news the Serena has been adopted for ALL reading and English classes at Caldwell Community College in North Carolina!

I have four copies on hand for educators who are interested in this book. Please send me an email if you’re interested in considering Serena for one of your classes. You can also click here to read an excerpt.
