I'm Sarah Clarkson, an author and blogger who loves books, beauty, and imagination (and thinks everyone else should too). In these pages you can find out more about my published and upcoming books (Book Girl is the latest, releasing in 2018), follow my wonderings on the blog, or listen in on my literary ponderings on the podcast feature I host at Book Girl in Oxford. But I also hope you will simply explore, and glean a bit of wonder for the road.
I'm very glad you're here.

Book Girl is here! Join me here at launch party central for a list of live events, giveaways, and read-alongs. I’ll admit, I’m pretty darn excited about this day and so delighted to see this book makes its way into the world. Join me, friends!
It’s the eve of Book Girl’s launch day and I have all sorts of lovely things to announce. We have music, art, a giveaway, and a literary event…
A shared book is a ground of mutual discovery…
