I am really, really excited to tell you that New York Times Best Selling Author Jacquelyn Mitchard is coming to the Nevins Library! She’ll be here on Tuesday, June 7th at 7pm to talk about her latest book, Two if by Sea.
Two if by Sea follows former police officer Frank Mercy, and opens in Brisbane, Australia just as a tsunami devastates the region and kills Frank’s pregnant wife and her entire family. In the aftermath, Frank rescues a little boy from drowning. Even though he knows it’s wrong, he keeps the little boy and brings him home to his family’s horse farm in Wisconsin. As he gets to know the boy he names Ian, he realizes that there is something special about him. Also that there are people who are after Ian, and are not afraid to injure or kill to get him.
I have been fortunate enough to have seen Jacquelyn Mitchard speak twice now, and she is so funny and entertaining! She really knows how to tell a great story. Ms. Mitchard is also the author of The Deep End of the Ocean, which you may remember as the first book chosen for Oprah’s Book Club and was also made into a movie starring Michelle Pfeiffer and Treat Williams.
This is sure to be a great event. Call the main desk or register through the calendar of events at www.nevinslibrary.org to reserve your free seat. Copies of Ms. Mitchard’s books will also be available for purchase at the event.
See you there!
