Maggie Ginsberg is bringing her debut novel Still True to Kismet Books! Maggie will be joined in conversation by Laura Anne Bird, author of Crossing the Pressure Line. Q&A and book signing to follow.
About Still True:
One summer evening, Lib Hanson is confronted by her painful past when Matt Marlow, the forty-year-old son she abandoned as an infant, shows up on her porch. Fiercely independent, Lib has never revealed her son’s existence — or her previous marriage—to her husband, Jack. Married nearly three decades but living in separate houses (to the confusion but acceptance of their neighbors), they enjoy an ease and comfort together in small-town Anthem, Wisconsin. But Jack is a stickler for honesty, and Lib’s long-dormant secret threatens to unravel their lives.
