How do you ensure kids are on their best behavior at a wedding reception? Sara Shacter has just the answer. “It’s a humorous book of wedding etiquette,” she tells I Do Radio host Angela Chester of her new children’s tale, Heading to the Wedding. “The story revolves around Patrick and his little sister Evie, who are invited to a wedding. But their parents are worried about how it’s going to go, so they have a practice wedding at home. And Evie marries a Dracula action figure, while a stuffed T-Rex presides over the ceremony. Along the way, they learn all the do’s and don’t’s of being a wedding guest. So when they attend the real wedding, it’s of course a smashing success. What I was shooting for is something that was completely non-denomenational. And kids really want to be involved in grown-up events, but we have to tell them what’s expected.”

Finding the right wedding favors — neither too cheap nor too grand — can be difficult. With wedding favors, the line between cute and kitsch is hin. If you either can’t or don’t decide to spend money on favors, then you should forego giving anything at all — it’s not necessary. With a little creativity, however, you can probably find or make the perfect favor.
Sara Rich (author) and Timm Tayshun (publisher) join us for a special episode to discuss the new Novel "Ligatures"!
Stanza Thompson knows how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but she can't read the signs of the times. Not, at least, until the witching hour. Stanza is a young American scholar working in Belgium when her husband, Pierre, is killed in a tragic bicycle accident. Devastated by her soul mate's death, she moves back to her family home in rural Kansas. In her five-year absence, Stanza's homeland - and especially her hometown - has become darkly twisted, creating something dangerously inhospitable to outsiders. As rebellious as she is brilliant, Stanza is a stranger in the university where she teaches, even in the town where she was born and raised. With ghosts and feral hounds as companions, she stumbles upon a carving in the woods that harkens back to Ozark magic, promising to single out and kill a witch. This discovery sends Stanza on a tornadic quest into regional folklore, a string of historical murders, and the occult - and ultimately, into the mysteries of her own bloody heritage and fey destiny. Composed of idiosyncratic characters and idiomatic prose, Ligatures combines elements of the weird, southern gothic, and magical realism to create a world that is familiar and terrifying at once. Between the suspense and the quality of writing, you won’t be able to put down this spellbinding book, even long after it’s finished. Reviewers of the Kindle version have called Ligatures “perceptive” with a “dimensional and complicated” protagonist that “brings to mind the early work of Barbara Kingsolver and Margaret Atwood.”
