Here’s the full description for the Wellesley event:

Fill your morning with engaging presentations by three authors discussing how they came to write their recently published books:

A Little History of the United States, by James West Davidson.
This latest book in “A Little History” series from Yale University Press guides us through 500 years in short chapters that bring to life hundreds of individuals whose riveting stories are part of America’s larger story. Davidson’s vivid narrative also sparks discussion about freedom, equality, and unity in our remarkably divided and diverse nation.

We Were Brothers, by Barry Moser. This powerful memoir is centered on the fragile brotherhood bond between Moser and his older brother. Growing up in Tennessee amidst racism and prejudice, the brothers’ paths grow apart until they can no longer find common ground. We Were Brothers is the wrenching yet compassionate story, full of life’s contradictions, of finding a way to reconcile before it was too late.

The Other Daughter, by Lauren Willig. In this historical novel set in England after WW1, Rachel Woodley, a governess, learns she is the illegitimate daughter of a respected earl. She moves to London to insinuate herself into the lives of the bright young society girls in order to set right the betrayal of her mother. Complications arise when she develops a new perspective on her half-sister.

The authors will autograph copies of their books— available for purchase at a discount. You can have lunch after Authors on Stage at the College Club for only $16 (including tax and gratuity). Call the club for lunch reservations: 781-283-2700.

If you can’t make it to either event, but would like a signed book, I’ll be informally signing at Porter Square Books on Monday afternoon. (If you happen in there around four o’clock on November 9th, you might find me with coffee in hand, busily scribbling my name in things.) If you’d like a book personalized to you or someone else, just call Porter Square Books at 617-491-2220 and they’ll relay the request to me, have it signed, and then ship it off to you. Personalized books do make excellent holiday gifts….

See you in Massachusetts next week!
