Toads' Museum of Freaks and Wonders, a novel by Goldie Goldbloom, will debut at Chicago's independent bookstore Women & Children First, Sunday, March 14th, at 4:30 p.m.
Goldbloom's novel was chosen by novelist Joanna Scott to win the 2008 AWP Award Series in the Novel, an award given by the Association of Writers and Writing Programs.
In her judge's citation, Joanna Scott called Toads’ Museum of Freaks and Wonders "a strange, mesmerizing tale about characters uncomfortably defined by superficial eccentricities. It is also a wrenching love story."
