Launch day!

Here is my wonderful friend Emily Dziuban of Charleston in Barnes & Noble with the book! And here also a send from Karl Rice, a former student of my Naples years, with a Las Vegas book store marketing innovation. It seems so magical, not just the creation of the object from the long-ago inspiration, but the system. Book produced in Knoxville, publication managed in New York, and now Emily has it in a SC and in Ghana, a haiku poet spoke to a blog review on how little progress we’ve made in compassionate discourse on immigration. I know, I know, this is connectivity 101, but it’s stunning to me in this context. What would Irma think of all this technology, all this sending and posting? She’d be bemused, I think.

Pamela Schoenewaldt, historical novels of immigration and the search for self in new worlds: WHEN WE WERE STRANGERS, SWIMMING IN THE MOON, and UNDER THE SAME BLUE SKY (all HarperCollins).

Recent Review
“Absorbing and layered with rich historical details, in Under the Same Blue Sky, Schoenewaldt weaves a tender and at times, heartbreaking story about German-Americans during World War I. With remarkable compassion, the author skillfully portrays conflicted loyalties, the search for belonging, the cruelty of war, and the resilience of the human spirit.”—Ann Weisgarber, author of The Promise and The Personal History of Rachel Dupree
