We’re thrilled to be publishing the second book from New York Times bestselling author Andrew Knapp. His first book, Find Momo, introduced the bookish world to his adorable, already-Instagram-famous border collie, Momo.
In Find Momo Coast to Coast, Andrew hit the road (in his awesome yellow van) and took some beautiful pictures of Momo (with his awesome red bandana) all across the country.
To celebrate his second book and Andrew’s next batch of adventures, we’re launching a pre-order campaign that’ll give you the chance to score all kinds of swag. Signed bookplates and posters for every pre-orderer? Yup. A chance to win a plush Momo? You betcha.
Read on to find out how to get swag and enter to win epic prizes.
NOTE FOR ALL PRE-ORDER-ERS: To enter, email a photo or a screenshot of your receipt to [email protected] with the subject line "Find Momo Pre-order." Make sure you send us your shipping address with your entry!
Also tweet #FindMomo to unlock some of the higher levels.
This campaign is open to US and Canada only.

Where there’s a list of top Irish authors, there’s usually James Joyce. Which isn’t to say the Ulysses scribe isn’t praiseworthy, just that Ireland has produced lots of other literary talent, too. As we celebrate Irish heritage in March, it’s time to offer the spotlight to some of the country’s other fine novelists. Here are some noteworthy ones to start you off.

It’s finally beginning to look like spring is on its way to New York City. This week offers a ton of great opportunities to make use of the extra hour of daylight.
Cheer on debut authors like Eddie Joyce and Sarah Blake in Staten Island and Brooklyn, and then head to Manhattan to hear from NBCC finalists at The New School. Listen to brilliant women read letters at Joe’s Pub, and maybe tell your own story at The Moth.
Best of all, you’ll be able to run around the city without needing multiple pairs of mittens.

As I’m sure many of you lovely readers have noticed, the summer is over. For some of you this may mean a return to high school or college, or maybe starting a new internship. For others, it might just mean that it’s fifty degrees cooler and now we can finally go outside.
But the end of summer doesn’t only bring cool fall weather, it’s also the beginning of what I like to call Travel Envy Season. Ah yes, the time of year when your Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook feeds are filled with pictures of getaways and exertions to far off lands, to either escape the cold or check out the autumn foilage.
Except instead of wishing I were in Vermont or Colorado, I develop an intense desire to visit Narnia or Hobbiton. This may sound shocking, but it is nearly impossible to find a plane ticket to Narnia.
If this problem sounds familiar to you, today is your lucky day. With my summer travels all but finished, I have decided to fill the void by compiling a list of the five (mostly) fictional places I would love to visit, and their real-life counterparts. Hopefully some of these vacation destinations will end up on all of our itineraries next year!

Charles Darwin—traveler, naturalist, and father of evolution—would have celebrated his 205th birthday on this day, and in honor of this most momentous occasion, let’s look at the explorers who, in their respective works of literature, braved the perils and uncertainties of new worlds, either in the pursuit of knowledge, or the avoidance of the mundane.
