Penguin Random House and its Crown Publishing Group division have launched “Season of Stores,” an 11-week series that sends serialized stories directly to readers’ inboxes. Readers can sign up now to begin receiving stories October 11.
The new storytelling project is free and features stories from Anthony Marra, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Adam Johnson, Elizabeth McCracken and others.
Readers will receive a new story each week, beginning on Tuesday and unfolding in daily emails through Friday. At the conclusion of each story, readers will have the option to purchase the book in which the featured story appeared.
“We created Season of Stories to connect with readers where they spend so much of their time—their email. Our mission is to make participants’ inboxes a more literary space, with great stories, and to help them discover previously unfamiliar authors,” said Alana Buckbee, assistant director of community development at Crown. “The program’s emails are the perfect length to dive into while waiting in line, commuting, or during a lunch break.”
