Depression-Era America, a Traveling Library, & Women's Friendship, a Fiction Book Talk & Signing
Jojo Moyes is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of After You, Me Before You, The Girl You Left Behind, and many other novels. Moyes will discuss and sign The Giver of Stars ($28.00 Pamela Dorman Books). Set in Depression-era America, this is a breathtaking story of five extraordinary women and their remarkable journey through the mountains of Kentucky and beyond.
When a call goes out for a team of women to deliver books as part of Eleanor Roosevelt’s new traveling library, Alice Wright signs on enthusiastically. Alice and four other singular woman become known as the Horseback Librarians of Kentucky. What happens to them--and to the men they love--becomes a classic drama of loyalty, justice, humanity, and passion. Based on a true story rooted in America’s past, The Giver of Stars is unparalleled in its scope. At times funny, at others heartbreaking, this is a richly rewarding novel of women’s friendship, of true love, and of what happens when we reach beyond our grasp for the great beyond.
Moyes will be in conversation with Eleanor Brown, the local author of The Light of Paris and The Weird Sisters.
