Author Jane Green to visit Main Library

New York Times bestselling author Jane Green is discussing her new novel, The Sunshine Sisters, at 7 p.m. Thursday, June 22, in the Reading Garden Lounge at the Main Library.

In The Sunshine Sisters, Ronni Sunshine left London for Hollywood in the 1960s to become a beautiful, charismatic star of the silver screen. But at home, she was a narcissistic, disinterested mother who alienated her three daughters. Still, when Ronni discovers she has a serious illness, she calls her now-adult girls home to fulfill her final wishes. Nell, Meredith and Lizzy are all going through crises of their own. But as their mother’s illness draws them together to confront old jealousies and secret fears, they discover that blood might be thicker than water after all.

Green is signing her books after talking. Books are available for purchase courtesy of Joseph-Beth Booksellers
