Author event: Melanie Gideon

Author Melanie Gideon and her latest book, Valley of the Moon

Local author Melanie Gideon will be at the Montclair branch Tuesday, September 27 from 6:30-8:00pm to read from and discuss her latest book: Valley of the Moon.

The author of the critically acclaimed Wife 22 (which name-checks The Egg Shop and other Montclair locations) and The Slippery Year: A Meditation on Happily Ever After has written a captivating novel about a love that transcends time.

Inspired by the movie/musical Brigadoon, Valley of the Moon is about a young single mother who stumbles across a community in Sonoma County that has, impossibly, been marooned in the early 20th century. A gorgeous, original and deeply moving novel about love and longing and the power that time holds over all of us, Valley of the Moon is unforgettable.

Books will be sold at the reading by A Great Good Place for Books.
