AuthorsLive: Bestselling Author Emily Giffin to discuss "Where We Belong"
AuthorsLive@GreenwichLibrary is thrilled to welcome best-selling author Emily Giffin on Wednesday, July 25 at 7 p.m. in the Cole Auditorium. She will discuss her latest book, Where We Belong.
When is it justifiable to keep secrets from the ones we love? And if we do, will keeping those secrets irrevocably change who we are? These are the questions that lie at the heart of Emily Giffin's highly anticipated new novel, Where We Belong, an unforgettable tale of two women, the secret that binds them together and its impact on the lives of those closest to them.
Marian Caldwell is a thirty-six year old television producer with an enviable life in New York City. With a skyrocketing career and picture-perfect relationship, she has convinced everyone that her life is just as she wants it to be. But one night, Marian answers a knock on the door...only to find Kirby Rose, an eighteen-year-old girl with a key to a past that Marian thought she had sealed off forever. From the moment Kirby appears on her doorstep, Marian's meticulously constructed world will be shaken to its core, resurrecting ghosts of a passionate young love affair that threaten everything that has come to define her. As Marian and Kirby embark on a journey to find the one thing missing in each of their lives, they will come to recognize that where they belong is quite possibly where they least expect to find themselves--a place they may have willed themselves to forget, but that the heart remembers forever.
Dubbed a "modern day Jane Austen" (Vanity Fair) and a "dependably down-to-earth storyteller" (New York Times), Giffin has penned five New York Times bestsellers, Something Borrowed (2004), Something Blue (2005), Baby Proof (2006), Love the One You're With (2008) and Heart of the Matter (2010). Her novels have been translated into twenty-nine languages, with ten million copies in print worldwide. In addition, four of her novels have been optioned for the big screen and are in various stages of development. The first, Something Borrowed, hit theaters in May 2011, starring Kate Hudson, Ginnifer Goodwin and John Krasinski.
