WUFT’s Glenn Richards speaks with world-renown, best-selling Gainesville author Lauren Groff. She is the author of five books, including her last book, the National Book Award Finalist, Fates and Furies. It won the 2015 American Booksellers’ Association Indies’ Choice Award for Fiction, was a New York Times Notable book and Bestseller, and Amazon.com’s #1 book of 2015. It was also President Obama’s favorite book of 2015.
Groff’s new book is a collection of short stories called, Florida. It is being published today (Tuesday, June 5, 2018) by Riverhead Books/Penguin Random House and will be celebrated with a free Book Launch Party at 6:00 p.m. at the Cade Museum for Creativity & Invention in Gainesville.
It is already receiving early favorable attention from The New York Times, The Washington Post, The New Yorker, The Chicago Tribune, Vogue, NPR, and more. It looks like Florida is quickly becoming a must-read book for summer reading lists.
