There is an excellent piece about Bald Cypress Books in today's edition of the Delaware State News, written by long-time local journalist Glenn Rolfe.

It's a fantastic example of a journalist digging deeper than the press release and discovering the bigger story, and I'm grateful for the coverage.


You can find the article in the print edition of the paper, or online.

The handful of preorders submitted while hardcovers were out of stock will be fulfilled immediately. Thank you for your patience.
