discussing Brownrigg's new novel, Pages for Her, the story of two women, Flannery and Anne, each at a personal turning point, and the circumstances that lead to their reunion.
"Brownrigg . . . approaches her characters with clarity and sensitivity, capturing the nuances in the women's relationships to the people they love--as mother, daughter, sister, friend, wife, or lover--and the power they give those people to define and inspire them . . . Brownrigg considers motherhood, romance, identity, and the changes brought by time in this tender, insightful novel."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
Twenty years after their brief but passionate affair, chronicled in Brownrigg's earlier novel, Pages for You, Flannery has the chance once again to meet Anne, who opened young Flannery up to the possibility of love--then left her heartbroken.
reads from her new novel, A House Among the Trees, the story of an unusual bond between a world-famous writer and his assistant--a richly plotted novel of friendship and love, artistic ambition, the perils of celebrity, and the power of an unexpected legacy.
"Radiant . . . Warmhearted . . . Grippingly readable . . . [Glass's] conclusion finds room for compromise and mutual fulfillment among her full-bodied, compassionately rendered characters." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
When the revered children's book author Mort Lear dies accidentally at his Connecticut home, he leaves his property and all its contents to his trusted assistant, Tomasina Daulair, who is moved by his generosity but dismayed by the complicated and defiant directives in his will. Tommy knew Morty for more than four decades, since meeting him in a Manhattan playground when she was twelve and he was working on sketches for the book that would make him a star.
Celebrating the double launch for their YA novels just releasing: When I Am Through with You ("A tense, masterful thriller that gripped me from the first page."--Kara Thomas, author of The Darkest Corners) and Little & Lion ("Beautifully insightful, honest, and compassionate."--Nicola Yoon), respectively.
These two YA authors form a Mutual Admiration Society, so what could be better than to pair them as their new books come out?

This sweet, rhyming counting book introduces young readers to numbers one through fifteen as Grandma's family and friends fill her tiny house on Brown Street. Neighbors, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and grandkids crowd into the house and pile it high with treats for a family feast. But when the walls begin to bulge and no-body has space enough to eat, one clever grandchild knows exactly what to do. Where there's a will there's a way when families grow and come together.
reading from Days Without End, winner of the Costa Book of the Year Award (his second) and just released in paperback.
"A true leftfield wonder: Days Without End is a violent, superbly lyrical western offering a sweeping vision of America in the making, the most fascinating line-by-line first person narration I've come across in years."--Kazuo Ishiguro
"For its exhilarating use of language alone, Sebastian Barry's Days Without End stood out among the year's novels. Epic in conception but comparatively brief in its extent, this brutal, beautiful book also features the year's most beguiling narrator ... A great American novel which happens to have been written by an Irishman."--The Times Literary Supplement
Launch for You Bring the Distant Near.
reading from Moonglow, just released in paperback.
reads from her short story collection, World Gone Missing.
