BIRMINGHAM, Ala.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Books-A-Million announced today revered author Amy Gary’s brand-new book, “In the Great Green Room: The Brilliant and Bold Life of Margaret Wise Brown” is the newest Books-A-Million President’s Pick – a personally curated selection of literature offered up by Books-A-Million CEO and President Terrance G. Finley. In celebration, the premier book retailer will host a FREE signing event with Gary on Thursday, January 26 at 6:30 p.m. at the Brookwood Village Books-A-Million store, located at 757 Brookwood Village.
“In the Great Green Room” tells the extraordinary story of “Goodnight Moon” and “Runaway Bunny” author Margaret Wise Brown, whose lulling words and prolific writing created nighttime rituals for millions of children and families. However, few knew these classic works were a part of a publishing revolution led by Brown until Gary uncovered hundreds of unpublished manuscripts, songs, personal letters and diaries in Brown’s sister’s attic. Through this discovery, Gary has gained unique insight into Brown’s quirky and wildly imaginative world. From attending rabbit hunts and hosting lavish parties to living extravagantly off her royalties and carrying on multiple, troubled affairs; nothing was off limits for the adventurous Brown.
This author event and book signing is FREE and open to the public. “In the Great Green Room” is now available for purchase online or in-store at any Books-A-Million location.
