Goose Lane Editions’s Bethany Gibson has acquired world rights to Amber McMillan‘s debut short story collection, THE RUNNING TREES. Amber McMillan is the author of The Woods: A Year on Protection Island, a memoir; and We Can’t Ever Do This Again, a book of poetry. THE RUNNING TREES asks what constitutes truth, opinion, and fact, tapping into the current zeitgeist of email, texting, and social media, and examines the murky terrain of feeling and memory. Publication is scheduled for 2021. The deal was arranged by Stephanie Sinclair.
