Brown Paper Press launched its fourth title today, with the publication of The Inheritance of Shame: A Memoir by Peter Gajdics. We couldn't be more proud of this book, or this author. And the accolades it has been receiving from reviewers, reporters and readers has made this experience all the sweeter.
Please check out the book on Amazon — here's the link! — and let us know what you think.
Peter's book tour begins tonight at Fingerprints in Long Beach and extends through June 3 — including stops in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Oakland, Seattle and Portland. Click here for more information about those events. We'd love to see you there!
