We are happy to share that December 9, 2018 is the 20th anniversary of the first appearance by a Sourcebooks title on the New York Times bestsellers list!
In December of 1998, We Interrupt This Broadcast by Joe Garner, with CDs narrated by Bill Kurtis, appeared on the Hardcover Nonfiction list.
In 1998 Sourcebooks was still a very small publisher, with no concept that making the New York Times list was even possible — or how one found out about it. That fall, we shipped thousands of copies of We Interrupt This Broadcast (a $45 value, complete with CDs) and the enthusiasm about the book by our bookselling partners was incredible.
On a late Wednesday afternoon in December, a bookstore called us to say we had made the New York Times bestseller list. They emphasized that "we" had made the list, which was fitting then and now: the Sourcebooks team includes our authors, of course, and it also includes our partners and champions in the bookselling and librarian communities. They are the folks who are boots-on-the-ground during the holiday season, working tirelessly to put just the right book in the right reader’s hands. We applaud them – we’re proud to be on a team together.

About the book
The first book to open up a real conversation about aging. What has the experience of getting older felt like for you?
It seems that life’s milestones pass by in a flash: graduating from school, landing your first job, getting married, having kids. Most people look forward to these events and have some expectations about what each life milestone will be like. But what about when you get older? How can you continue to live fully in your sixties, seventies, and beyond? Linda K. Stroh and Karen K. Brees asked nearly one thousand older people about the challenges and joys of growing older and compiled their collective wisdom into this must-have book, focusing on important topics such as:
· Changing self-identities
· Friendships and romantic relationships
· Health, fitness, and self-image
· Relationships with adult children, grandchildren, and siblings
· And much more!
Full of advice and stories from a wide variety of older people, Getting Real about Getting Older examines love, loss, and changing identities, and will help you take control of your concerns about aging and experience wisdom and joy as an older adult.

About the author
Hannah Jewell is an on camera host for the video team at The Washington Post. She was previously a writer at BuzzFeed UK, where she became known for her humor writing about gender and her satire of UK and US politics, and for presenting BuzzFeed's live 2016 election night show. She was born in London, but her parents whisked her away to California when she was a baby, and so she grew up frolicking on beaches and through redwood forests. She earned a degree from UC Berkeley in Middle Eastern Studies, taking a year out to study and work in Beirut. She had a great time in Lebanon but now is unfortunately banned from that country. She then returned to the UK in 2013 for an MPhil in International Relations and Politics at Cambridge, which was mostly fine. Her career highlight so far was breaking the story of the “Milifandom” for BuzzFeed, a strange phenomenon when teen girls across Britain went wild for the leader of the Labour Party Ed Miliband in the 2015 general election. Now she lives in Washington and wishes she had cats. Visit her online at hannahjewell.com and on Twitter @hcjewell.

The Radium Girls:
The story of real women at the mercy of businesses who see them only as a potential risk to the bottom line is haunting precisely because of how little has changed; the glowing ghosts of the radium girls haunt us still. —NPR Books
