New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of over twenty novels, Kristan Higgins, joins us to celebrate her new novel PACK UP THE MOON in conversation with Saumya Dave, resident psychiatrist and author of WHAT A HAPPY FAMILY. PACK UP THE MOON is a sometimes heartbreaking, often funny, and uplifting novel about a woman with a terminal illness that leaves a letter for her husband each month that contains a task to help him face the first year without her. In this novel, Kristan illuminates how life's greatest joys are often hiding in plain sight. We have hosted Kristan at the bookstore several times, and each time she graces our stage it's such a treat for the audience and our booksellers. This time, we are thrilled to introduce Kristan and Saumya to our virtual stage for what is sure to be an unforgettable event. Save your spot in the free event below.
