When covid-19 hit and brought many in-person readings to a halt, Hidden Timber Books began hosting authors from small presses across the country via Zoom. This series quickly took shape as a wonderful way to bring authors and readers together and introduce them to new books and the many small presses that bring these books to your shelves. Readings are FREE, all you need to do is register for the link to join. Attend one, attend them all, and spread the word! *Please make note of time zones listed.
To view our past Small Press Author Readings, visit our YouTube Channel.
Inquiries about participating in our reading series can be sent to Vanessa Daunais, Publishing Assistant at Hidden Timber Books.
If you need accommodations for the reading, please contact us several days prior to the event.
We’ll do our best to make it accessible.
A DOOR BEHIND A DOOR (Two Dollar Radio)
In Yelena Moskovich’s spellbinding new novel, A Door Behind a Door, we meet Olga, who immigrates as part of the Soviet diaspora of ’91 to Milwaukee, Wisconsin. There she grows up and meets a girl and falls in love, beginning to believe that she can settle down. But a phone call from a bad man from her past brings to life a haunted childhood in an apartment building in the Soviet Union: an unexplained murder in her block, a supernatural stray dog, and the mystery of her beloved brother Moshe, who lost an eye and later vanished. We get pulled into Olga’s past as she puzzles her way through an underground Midwestern Russian mafia, in pursuit of a string of mathematical stabbings.
