A Night with the Author
Where: , 811 Elm St., Winnetka
When: Discussion begins at 7 p.m.
Program: Jennifer Close at the Book Stall
Three women struggling with romance gone sour, career changes, family pressure and blossoming love -- and if that weren't enough, toss in a round of weddings and bridal showers.
That's life, though, and it's the subject of Jennifer Close's debut novel Girls in White Dresses.
“With a wry sense of humor,” said one reviewer, “Close brings us through those thrilling, bewildering, what-on-earth-am-I-going-to-do-with-my-life years of early adulthood, perfectly capturing the wild frustrations and soaring joys of modern life.”
If you'd like to meet the author and hear her thoughts on the book, drop by the Book Stall, where Close will be on-hand to take questions.
For more information, contact the Book Stall at 847-446-8880.
