Description:
 Greenwich Library and Diane's Books will present Callie Wright, author of LOVE ALL on Wednesday, July 17 at 7 pm.

When the beloved matriarch of the Obermeyer family, Joanie, dies unexpectedly in her sleep, all three generations of the family are, for the first time, living under one roof and quickly encroaching on one another’s fragile orbits. Eighty-six-year-old Bob Cole is adrift in his daughter’s house without his wife. Anne Obermeyer is increasingly suspicious of her husband, Hugh’s, late nights and missed dinners, and Hugh, the principal of the town’s preschool, is terrified that a scandal at the school will erupt and devastate his life. Fifteen-year-old tennis hopeful Julia is caught in a love triangle with Sam and Carl, her would-be teammates and two best friends, while her brother, Teddy, the star pitcher of Cooperstown High, will soon catch sight of something that will change the family forever.

At the heart of the Obermeyers’ present-day troubles is the scandal of The Sex Cure. When Anne discovers a battered copy underneath her parents’ old mattress, the Obermeyers cannot escape the family secrets that come rushing to the surface.

Callie Wright is a reporter–researcher at Vanity Fair. She graduated from Yale and earned her MFA at the University of Virginia, where she was a Poe/Faulkner Fellow in Creative Writing and won a Raven Society Fellowship. She is the recipient of a Glimmer Train Short Story Award for New Writers and her short fiction has appeared in Glimmer Train and The Southern Review.
