Baltimore Magazine Promotes Setting the Family Free

Here’s a blast from the past: this time last year, in 2019, before we began sheltering in place, we enjoyed a book launch event for Setting the Family Free at The Ivy bookshop in their previous location. The event included animal-themed wines, animal crackers, a reading from the novel, and a great conversation with the audience participants.


Baltimore Magazine was kind enough to promote the event, and the novel.


In a related note, a literary journal editor recently accepted an excerpt from Setting the Family Free for publication and made an interesting and unexpected comment. When local authorities warn people to stay indoors and avoid going out, it was seen as a possible metaphor for our current COVID situation. Of course, Setting the Family Free was written well before any thoughts of a pandemic, but it’s an interesting insight.


You can still get your copy of Setting the Family Free today, at The Ivy Bookshop’s new location, from other book stores, or online!
