BK: Jamie Brenner presents THE FOREVER SUMMER with Amy Poeppel

04/27/2017 - 7:00pm

This event will take place in our Brooklyn location.

Join us as we celebrate the release of Jamie Brenner's latest book, The Forever Summer. Jamie Brenner will be in conversation with Amy Poeppel, author of Small Admissions.

Jamie Brenner’s delightful novel whisks readers away from the hard-charging streets of Manhattan to the dreamy beaches of Provincetown, Massachusetts. On paper, Marin Bishop appears to be at the top of her game. She is only twenty-nine years old, has landed a prestigious legal job, and has a successful and handsome fiancé, and her parents couldn’t be more proud. But one mistake brings her entire world crashing down. In The Forever Summer, Marin scrapes what’s left of her dignity off the floor of the apartment she can no longer afford and impulsively embarks on a road trip to Provincetown with an unlikely companion. As soon as they arrive at a beloved beachside inn, it’s clear that this summer will change Marin’s life forever. She discovers that her parents’ marriage is far from perfect, and establishes relationships she never knew she was missing. The Forever Summer is a multigenerational story about the secrets we keep from those we love most, and the extent to which the people closest to us can sometimes be the most unknowable. The characters are richly drawn, depicting a relatable family that desperately needs to make amends with their troubled past before they can move forward.

Jamie Brenner is the author of The Wedding Sisters. Her previous novels include the historical The Gin Lovers, named by Fresh Fiction as one of the Top Thirteen Books to read in 2013. She lives in Manhattan with her husband and two daughters.

Amy Poeppel is the author of the novel Small Admissions. Originally from Dallas, Texas, she graduated from Wellesley College and now lives with her husband and three sons in New York City. She workshopped a theatrical version of Small Admissions at the Actors Studio Playwrights/Directors Unit. Her second novel, Limelight, will be out in summer 2018, also with Emily Bestler Books/Simon and Schuster.

"Brenner tempers the weighty emotional aspects of the sisters’ journey with the fluffy frivolity of wedding planning, a contrast that fans of Emily Giffin and Lauren Weisberger will adore. Mixing high society and high drama, this one is witty, heartfelt, and fun." - Booklist
