Joyce Carol Oates will be at Bloomingdale’s to support Literacy Partners, a charitable organization teaching adult literacy skills. Fashion jewelry company CAROLEE will be selling an Author’s Collection of bangles called “Words to Live By,” engraved with quotes from Joyce Carol Oates (and others) as well as the author’s signature. CAROLEE will donate 10% of retail sales from the Author’s Collection to Literacy Partners.
Those unable to make it to NYC can get their bangles online; but, alas, no signed book.
I'm a Reference Librarian at the University of San Francisco's Gleeson Library, and I run the Joyce Carol Oates web site, Celestial Timepiece.
