Are you ready to delve into The Lost Summers of Newport?
In 1899, a music teacher is hired to help a shy new money heiress win the heart of an Italian prince… In 1957, an unhappy society wife’s life is falling to bits in the lead up to the Tiffany Ball… and in 2019, a struggling single mom is stuck working on a horrible mansion makeover show. Their lives entwine and generations of secrets are revealed in… The Lost Summers of Newport.
It seems hard to believe, but the pub date is almost upon us (and I hear a few lucky souls have already found copies in their local Barnes & Nobles).
Pub day is officially Tuesday, May 17th, but if you’re in New England, you can get your hands on a copy sooner, by coming to see Team W at:
—Charter Books in Newport on Saturday, May 14th;
—Porter Square Books in Cambridge, MA (right next to my grad school grocery store!) on Sunday, May 15th;
— or Ocean House in Westerly, RI on Monday, May 16th–
— and on Tuesday, May 17th, it will be available everywhere!
Team W is going to trotting around from place to place for the next two weeks on the Most Fun Book Tour Ever (Part IV). If you’re in any of the places below, come join us!
Some quick notes on tour:
— The launch event at Rough Point IS sold out, but you can still see us in Rhode Island at an informal meet and greet at Charter Books (free and open to anyone, please RSVP here), at our event at Ocean House (ticketed event; you can purchase your ticket here), or at a top secret super event with Reading with Robin in August to be formally announced very, very soon (shhhh, don’t let anyone know I told you!).
— The Litchfield Literary Festival in Myrtle Beach on Sunday, May 22nd is sold out, but you can still see us in South Carolina at the Charleston Library Society with Buxton Books in Charleston on Saturday, May 21st (ticketed event: you can purchase your ticket here).
— The Carmel, Indiana event is sold out. Sadly, we don’t have an alterna-event to offer for this one,
— The Hanover PA event is now 7:00 instead of 5:30 and is NOT ticketed but registration is required. You can register here, and, if you so desire, you can preorder a book (or five!) for the event here.
— The St. Louis, MO event isn’t ticketed or reserved; it’s first come first served. The event starts at 7 and doors open at 6, so I advise getting there early….
— I will be jumping off the tour after the Scottsdale event on May 23rd because of small people, but Karen and Beatriz will be doing an extra lap through the south, so you can catch 2/3 of Team W in South Carolina and Georgia on May 24th and 25th!
— You can find details on everything and which events are ticketed and which are not here.
— Is there anything else you wanted to know that I forgot to add?
So excited to share this book with you and to see some of you on the road next week!
