Join New York Times bestselling author Joyce Maynard for a sparkling conversation and a glass of champagne as we celebrate the release of her new book How the Light Gets In – the eagerly anticipated follow up to Count the Ways

With her trademark compassion and insight Joyce Maynard paints an indelible portrait of characters both familiar and new making their way over rough, messy, and treacherous terrain to discover what is, for each, a place to call home and family. 

“Joyce Maynard has stitched together a warm, rich patchwork quilt of a novel that reminds us history is made up simply of our stories, and that even in broken, imperfect things one finds beauty and strength.” ~ Jodi Picoult, #1 NY Times Bestselling author 

"If ever we needed a novel capable of healing our troubled, world-weary souls, that time is now. But where, oh where is the book? Actually, it has arrived: Joyce Maynard's new novel, How the Light Gets In. And what a gift it is."  Richard Russo, Pulitzer Prize winning author of Empire Falls.

Admission to this special event includes a signed copy of How the Light Gets In and champagne!
