Description

Liam Callanan visits our next Literary Luncheon to discuss his latest novel PARIS BY THE BOOK!

Charming, haunting, and triumphant, PARIS BY THE BOOK follows one woman's journey as she writes her own story, exploring the power of family and the magic that hides within the pages of a book. Fans of bookshop set tales will be especially delighted.

“Sublime...Callanan has crafted a beautifully‐drawn portrait of a woman interrupted set among the exquisite magic of Paris, where life frequently imitates art and the ghosts of the past linger just out of site. Book lovers and Paris aficionados will be enthralled.” –Publishers Weekly, *Starred review

“A love letter to reading, writing, and all things French, Paris by the Book combines a charming first‐person protagonist, a nuanced family drama, and the magic of Paris.” –Shelf Awareness, *Starred review

“Callanan has woven a tale of grief, resentment, and the everyday madness of equivocating the unfathomable. ... Callanan’s sweet and compulsively readable tale invites readers to fall in love with Paris, Leah, and her family.” —Booklist

Your $12 ticket includes the luncheon with wine.
