Kirkus Reviews Lists Ladies Night at the Dreamland in Best of 2016

December 7, 2016

Sonja Livingston’s book, Ladies Night at the Dreamland, has been selected as a Best Book of 2016 (Nonfiction) by Kirkus Reviews. The “radiant” essays, inspired by “slivers and bits” of real women’s lives, are based on The Dreamland, “…a real dance club that burned down in 1923 and a dreamscape, where Livingston reunites women as disparate as activist Susan B. Anthony, tightrope walker Maria Spelterini, artists’ model Audrey Munson, and poet Adelaide Crapsey.”

Well done, Sonja!
