Announcing Our Latest Book Club Pick!
Shelf Pleasure is thrilled to team up with The Daily Basics for a new series of book club chats on Google Plus. Our first pick is the award-winning, New York Times and USA Today bestselling Have No Shame by Melissa Foster.
The racially-charged prejudice of the Deep South forces 18-year-old Alison Tillman to confront societal norms–and her own beliefs–when she discovers the body of a hate crime victim.
Why Have No Shame?
I have worked on hundreds of books during my career both as an in-house editor and now as an independent editor. Melissa Foster is one of those rare authors who always surprises. Choosing a favorite between all of the books I’ve edited is impossible, but Have No Shame is one that stole a big chunk of my heart. Alison Tillman is a heroine we can all relate to as she wrestles with what she thought she always wanted and the world she never even imagined she could have. Don’t just take my word for it. Midwest Book Review says, “Have No Shame is a powerful testimony to love and the progressive, logical evolution of social consciousness, with an outcome that readers will find engrossing, unexpected, and ultimately eye-opening.”
I can’t wait to share this book with all of the Shelf Pleasure and Daily Basics readers.
Melissa herself will join us for a Google Plus hangout on Tuesday, May 13th at 8pm EST. In the meantime, pick up a copy and start reading along with us. We can’t wait to hear your thoughts on the novel. Watch for giveaways leading up to the chat!
