Such richly fraught mother-daughter relationships can be lifelines, anchors, or they can sink a woman like a stone. Whether this reflects the worst of the family business ethos (the idea that you just cannot ever give up, because you’ll be disappointing centuries of grim forbearers) or the best (that the life of enterprises is longer than a human life, and that each generation contributes its part to a greater project), it’s hard to tell. What’s the prediction about electronic hand-held books eventually causing the demise of the printed book?

There are also many book fairs across the country such as the National Book Festival, The Miami Book Fair International, Texas Book Festival, and Printer’s Row Lit Fest, all of which are partly organized and staffed by booksellers.

Morgan Jurgenson and Alex Ankeles (Robodog) will adapt the books. His new novel, The Hidden Keys, is the third in the series.
