High-quality weirdo Douglas Kaine McKelvey is one of the best writers any of us have ever heard of. His craft spans works of beauty, absurdity, tragedy, brilliancy, surreality, and heartwarbling poignancy.
Doug’s most recent book is The Wishes of the Fish King (illustrated by Jamin Still). Currently he is working with illustrator Zach Franzen and our own Bookbindery Guildmaster to republish The Angel Knew Papa and the Dog, a middle-grade “lyrical frontier fantasy.” It is available for preorder at the Rabbit Room for release early next month.
In addition to all this, Doug wrote the Wingfeather Tale which Andrew called one of his top five books of last year. And that brings us to:
To wrap up our Wingfeather Tales book club, Doug will be joining Andrew for a LIVE CHAT AT THE CHAPTER HOUSE on Tuesday, April 11. Details to come!
This week, Madame Sidler will read the Part One of “The Places Beyond the Maps.” Come back on Friday for an excerpt, and to share one of your own! Meanwhile, join us in the forum as we talk about what this story said to us.
