Happy pub day to Feast Your Eyes by Myla Goldberg! If you were alive and reading in 2000 you already know Myla as the author of the bestselling, award-winning, mega book club favorite, BEE SEASON! Raise your hand if you’ve read it 🙋🏻♀️!
Today, she’s back with Feast Your Eyes, a compelling and totally original story about a female photographer grappling with ambition and motherhood. Lillian Preston is “America’s Worst Mother, America’s Bravest Mother, America’s Worst Photographer, or America’s Greatest Photographer, depending on who was talking.” That’s because when a small New York gallery exhibits partially nude photographs of Lillian and her daughter Samantha, Lillian is arrested, thrust into the national spotlight, and targeted with an obscenity charge. Mother and daughter’s sudden notoriety changes the course of both of their lives.
This is a novel you do not want to miss—available everywhere today!
94 years ago TODAY, Scribner (or Charles Scribner’s Sons, as we were then named) published The Great Gatsby. On the day of publication, Fitzgerald called his editor, Maxwell Perkins, and asked “Any news?” On April 20th Perkins sent a wire saying “Sales situation doubtful, but excellent reviews.”
In honor of this monumental anniversary, FIVE of you will win a copy of The Great Gatsby plus one of these classic Scribner totes, featuring the man himself. All you have to do to enter is:
1. Follow us @scribnerbooks
2. Tag three friends in the comments (and if you feel like leaving your favorite Gatsby quote, go forth!)
We’ll choose five winners tomorrow at 4pm ET. Good luck!

🦢 TODAY’S THE DAY! 🦢 We’ve been gushing about this whip smart debut novel for so long that it’s hard to believe Stay Up with Hugo Best is finally available everywhere!
So many have already read and loved this one (shout out to @vogue who called it “a devilishly fun ride” and @entertainmentweekly who nailed it on their Must List: “incisive, funny, and tinged with melancholy”) but if you haven’t had a chance, now’s the time! Here’s what you need to know.
A beloved late-night TV icon—and notorious womanizer—invites you to his mansion for Memorial Day Weekend. You’re twenty-nine, broke, cynical, and an aspiring comedy writer with nothing to lose. He promises there will be no funny business.... Do you accept?
