Review of Jobs for Girls in The Common literary magazine

“Rarely is a book as delightful as June Gervais’s debut novel, Jobs for Girls with Artistic Flair, a story of people who do their best to be better and then fail and try again with courage and integrity. ” Read the review by author Susan Scarf Merrell in The Common Online.

Upcoming Events

October 20-22: I’ll be at Ohio’s Lit Youngstown Literary Festival, presenting two talks: “Honoring Others with Our Fiction Research” and “Persevering to Publication: Some Practical Tips.” Walk-in registration is free for undergraduate students, $15 for grad students and part-time faculty, $85 for everybody else. See the festival lineup here. 


Jobs for Girls launched on the summer solstice with a reading/Q&A at Port Jefferson Library and celebration at Barito Tacos in Port Jeff. Having written a book about a Long Island girl who doesn’t quite feel like she belongs anywhere, to experience that kind of community support is something I will never forget.
