So, you think there are no more book parties in New York? Well, when you have a banner year like American writer Bradford Morrow with a lot to celebrate, there is.

After not having published a book since his 2007 children’s book, DIDN’T Didn’t Do It, this year Morrow has published:

The Diviners Tale, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, January
The Innevitable: Contemporary Writers Confront Death, which he edited, W.W. Norton, February
Fall of the Birds an e-original, Open Road Media, November
The Uninnocent, hardcover and e-book, Pegasus and Open Road Media, December

And, as if that isn’t enough, Morrow celebrated the 30th anniversary of Conjunctions, the literary magazine he founded.

So, on December 1st, bestselling writer Peter Straub and his wife Susan hosted a party in honor of the publication of The Uninnocent. The report from the party was that it was akin to an episode of “This is Your Life,” with friends and colleagues throughout Morrow’s career in attendance and a jubilant spirit throughout. In this age of literary uncertainty, it is heartening to see a writer have so many projects and such great success. Take a look at some photos from the party.
