Tortoise Books Presents: A Conversation & Reading with Alex Poppe

 
 
 
 
Join us for conversation and a reading with award-winning author Alex Poppe. In between a life of adventure teaching English in Kurdistan, Alex wrote Girl, World, a 35 Over 35 Debut Book Award Winner and a finalist for the Eric Hoffer Award's Montaigne Medal. Her newest book, Moxie is forthcoming from Tortoise Books.
 
Tortoise Books is a Chicago-based publisher with a hybrid publishing strategy focusing on the best attributes of the "old" industry (extensive editing, heavy pre-publication publicity work, and a financial structure that invests in the future success of its authors) and the best attributes of newer publish-on-demand capabilities (the ability to get something good out there quickly, without regard to whether it fits into some multinational conglomerate's busy schedule).
