ToB Authors Donate to First Book

Speaking of Tournament of Books, Tournament commentator and Book Club selection author Kevin Guilfoile and former Tournament judge and local author Jonathan Eig are taking this opportunity to do some literary good. For the month of March, Kevin will donate $2 to First Book for every sold copy of his new novel, The Thousand, and Jonathan will do the same for his new book, Get Capone. First Book is a national non-profit organization that provides access to new books for children who are in need. Do them a double by clicking on title links above and find the closest independent bookstore where you can pick up your copies.
