Happy Birthday, GOODNIGHT JUNE!
Today GOODNIGHT JUNE debuts in the US! I’m so very proud of this novel and can’t wait to share it with you.
Here’s a description of the story:
The New York Times bestselling author of Blackberry Winter imagines the inspiration for Goodnight Moon
Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown (Goodnight Songs) is an adored childhood classic, but its real origins are lost to history. In Goodnight June, Sarah Jio offers a suspenseful and heartfelt take on how the “great green room” might have come to be.
June Andersen is professionally successful, but her personal life is marred by unhappiness. Unexpectedly, she is called to settle her great-aunt Ruby’s estate and determine the fate of Bluebird Books, the children’s bookstore Ruby founded in the 1940s. Amidst the store’s papers, June stumbles upon letters between her great-aunt and the late Margaret Wise Brown—and steps into the pages of American literature.
GOODNIGHT JUNE (which has gotten rave early reviews from Kirkus, BookList, Library Journal, and is one of a dozen featured books for June by the independent bookstore association of America, IndieBound).
I would be eternally grateful if you found a moment to look for a copy at your favorite local bookstore this week, or online:

Hugs, and many, many thanks!
