Bestselling author Amy Bloom will be here on Thursday, January 21st at 7 p.m. to talk about her just-released book, Where the God of Love Hangs Out.

Bloom, beloved for her short stories, is also the author of Away, Come to Me, and A Blind Man Can See How Much I Love You.

Here's some buzz about the new book:

Janet Maslin of The New York Times calls Where the God of Love Hangs Out a “beautifully astute new book” and adds “Ms. Bloom is as interested in the forces that rupture bonds as in the ones that, against all odds and sometimes at terrible risk, manage to create them. The subtle, stirring title story ably illustrates Ms. Bloom’s tremendous gift for imagining life as a series of choices, with the paths not taken as vivid as the ones that are.”

“Richly drawn… Bloom bravely exposes the double-edged nature of sex and romantic love, her two great subjects.” —Elle Magazine

“If you delight in the densely detailed, wryly funny, provocative fiction of Amy Bloom, her new story collection will not disappoint…To read Bloom is to fall in love—with her characters and with the magic that language can make.” —More Magazine

A book signing will follow the presentation. Books will be available for sale. Refreshments will be served.
