Sunday, December 8th at 5 p.m.
Wally Lamb, author of We Are Water, will be our featured speaker.
With such New York Times bestsellers as She’s Come Undone and The Hour I First Believed, Wally Lamb has won the hearts of millions of readers. We Are Water, Lamb’s first full-scale novel in five years, is another probing exploration of contemporary themes, tempered with the wisdom and empathy that has marked all of this master storyteller’s work. Rooted in the world of a troubled family and driven by riveting drama, this warm-hearted, emotionally powerful novel explores childhood trauma, abuse, and family dynamics, as well as issues of class, race, and cultural inclusion.
Praise for We Are Water
“We are water: ‘fluid, flexible when we have to be. But strong and destructive, too.’ That’s evident in this emotionally involving new novel from the author of She’s Come Undone….Clear and sweetly flowing; highly recommended.” -- Library Journal, starred review
