Selden Edwards on rewriting & rejection

The Little Book that could, and did, get big

January 29, 2010

Rounding out our special guest speakers is none other than Selden Edwards, whose rousingly delectable time-skipping debut novel, The Little Book, took only 30 years to get published and made him an overnight success at the age of 67. NPR’s Maureen Corrigan called the book, “A soaring thing of joy whose only purpose—and I mean this as a compliment—is to delight and entertain.” Bestselling author Pat Conroy declared it, “wonderful…I’ve never read a novel like it. I felt like my life was changing forever as I savored its many delights and mysteries.” Selden will be with us Sunday night, Feb. 14, and the story of his journey to publication guarantees to inform and entertain. Consider it the SCWC’s especially wet Valentine smooch to you!
