To commemorate the ten-year anniversary of its publication, Soho Press will release a new edition of How Evan Broke His Head, by Garth Stein, the author of New York Times Bestselling and beloved contemporary classic, The Art of Racing in the Rain. The new edition, which will hit shelves on March 18th, will include a never-before-released conversation between Garth and his editor, Bryan Devendorf, drummer of The National.

Looking for a Community Reads selection that appeals to men?  As many program coordinators can attest, young male readers can be the hardest demographic to engage.  With a music-obsessed, soul-searching male protagonist at its center, Evan tells the story of a contemporary American family.  As Evan deals with epilepsy, fading dreams, and the surprise parenthood of a 14 year old boy, Stein weaves in life lessons with honesty and compassion.  With many teachable moments, How Evan Broke His Head, is perfect for community members of all ages.
