Andrew Ridker Author Event

Skylark Bookshop is proud to present one of the fiction debuts of the season on April 4 – Andrew Ridker, with his marvelous novel, The Altruists. The book has already garnered a huge amount of praise and is creating a real buzz in the book world. (The Advanced Reading Copy has been in hot demand around here.) Rights to the novel have been sold in seventeen different countries. It’s a wryly hysterical look at family dynamics – and it’s set in St. Louis! What’s not to like?
