Description

Join Interabang Books for a special event at Highland Park United Methodist Church as ANNA QUINDLEN introduces NANAVILLE: Adventures In Grandparenting. We are thrilled to welcome her to Dallas the very week this new book is published!


A novelist and journalist whose work has appeared on fiction, nonfiction, and self-help bestseller lists, Anna Quindlen has produced another winner in NANAVILLE. She reflects on the different maternal roles women play throughout their lives and explores the joys and revelations of being a first-time grandmother ... no longer being the mother and decision-maker, but instead a secondary character in support of her son and especially her daughter-in-law, who is beginning her own motherhood journey. Packed with her signature wisdom, humor and wit, this is Anna at her best: on family, female relationships, and being a parent, sister, friend, and mother-in-law.


Across the country, grandparents are taking more active roles in their grandchildren’s lives. 2.6 million adults are raising their grandchildren, and since the 1970s the number of children living with grandparents has doubled. As timely as ever, and again showing an uncanny ability to capture the pulse of life’s most memorable moments, Anna Quindlen speaks to women of all ages who are embracing a new way of grandparenting in NANAVILLE.


This is a ticketed event. Each ticket includes a copy of NANAVILLE. Anna Quindlen will sign books for those who attend after her conversation with a moderator (to be announced). Advance purchase is encouraged, but some tickets may be available at the door. Seating is general admission. Please note that the event does not take place at our bookshop.


Interabang Books is honored to host Anna Quindlen through the courtesy of Highland Park Methodist Church, our event partner.
