McSweeney’s Kids Week!
This fall, McSweeney’s is publishing three new books for young readers: This Bridge Will Not Be Gray from Dave Eggers and Tucker Nichols, Awake Beautiful Child from Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Gracia Lam, and The Defiant by M. Quint. To show our love of young readers (and their parents!) we’re running special content on the Tendency all week, from new humor to contests to behind-the-scenes interviews, while putting select children’s book bundles for sale on our store site.
