The book

More news from the University of Illinois Press. The goal is to include the book in the spring 2014 catalog. The book should be out late spring or early summer. Tentatively the title will be Regina Anderson Andrews, Harlem Renaissance Librarian in a jacketed hardcover for $55! The manuscript has been sent to a copy editor and I should get feedback mid-August and will have a month to make the changes. I received marketing information from the press and an author marketing questionnaire. So exciting. Actually feel like an author. I hope to use the image in this post as the cover. Any suggestions for possible conferences, bookstores, possible prizes and awards to submit the book for would be welcomed in order to complete the questionnaire. I also have to come up with keywords, a  description of the book, a brief biographical sketch of me and author photo.
