The Johnson County Public Library is thrilled to welcome best-selling author Susan Wiggs as the next author in our 2019 Authors at JCPL series. Join us at The Custer Theater in Old Main on the campus of Franklin College for this event on Thursday evening, September 12.
Susan Wiggs is the #1 New York Times best-selling author of novels including the "Between You & Me" and "Map of the Heart." Join us as Susan shares about her newest novel, "The Oysterville Sewing Circle," a searing and timely novel that explores the most volatile issue of our time—domestic violence. In this new novel we find Caroline Shelby who has come home to a place she thought she’d left forever. And in the back seat of Caroline’s car are two children who were orphaned in a single chilling moment: five-year-old Addie and six-year-old Flick. She’s now their legal guardian—a role she’s not sure she’s ready for. Caroline returns to the sewing shop where she first found her passion, and discovers that even in an idyllic beach town, there are women living with the deepest of secrets. Thus begins the Oysterville Sewing Circle—where women can join forces to support each other through the troubles they keep hidden.
The first 100 JCPL cardholders to reserve a seat and attend this event will receive a copy of "The Oysterville Sewing Circle." Meet the author and get your books signed, as well! Copies of several of Susan's books will be available for purchase.
