Shepherd.com is a fairly new website and an exciting new way to share books–for readers as well as for a way for authors to share their own books.
The concept is for an author to feature his/her book, and also recommend five related books. Since I featured Leora’s Dexter Stories, I chose books of surprising stories about the Great Depression.
Here are the ones I recommended:
Joe Dew: A Glorious Life by Elaine Briggs
This is Grant Wood Country by Joan Liffrug-Zug
Cinderella Man: James J. Braddock, Max Baer, and the Greatest Upset in Boxing History by Jeremy Schaap
The WPA Guide to 1930s Iowa by Federal Writers Project
The Boys in the Boat: Nine Americans and Their Epic Quest for Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics by Daniel James Brown
Here’s the link to the post on Shepherd.com, where I explain why I chose those specific books.
