Smart Summer Reads 2019 ... August Version
This year we are providing two Smart Summer Reads (SSR) events in Manhattan Beach. Smart Summer Reads is fast, fun, and guaranteed to supply you with some great reading this summer.
Here's who's coming to SSR in August:
Sarah Archer's debut novel, The Plus One, has been touted as unputdownable! You must meet Kelly, a 29-year-old brilliant robotics engineer who creates her own date for her sister's wedding!
Yangsze Choo is the best-selling author of The Ghost Bride (soon to be a Netflix Original series). Her second book The Night Tiger is a sweeping historical novel about a dance hall girl and an orphan boy, whose fates entangle over an old Chinese superstition of men who turn into tigers.
R.O Kwon wrote 2018 Indie Next #1 Pick and an Indies Introduce selection, The Incendiaries. When Phoebe Lin and Will Kendall meet in their first month at prestigious Edwards University, they have no idea where their friendship will lead.
Jill Orr will join us with three lively entries in her Riley Ellison Mystery series. Her mysteries are fun and heart warming and the perfect summer read.
Noelle Salazar's breathtaking debut takes us back to World War II where a group of ground breaking women set out to serve their country in the Women Airforce Service Pilots program, fictionalized in The Flight Girls.
Ruchika Tomar has created a unique and compelling reading experience with her debut novel A Prayer for Travelers. In it, she explores the complicated legacy of the American West and the trauma of the female experience.
Here's how Smart Summer Reads works:
Our authors will join us on August 11 at 3:00pm. We will mix and chat from 3:00pm to 3:15pm and then the fun begins!
There will be six stations set up in a private home in Manhattan Beach. One for each author. You will move from station to station in 10-minute intervals giving each author approximately 7 minutes to tell you about their latest book and answer questions.
It is tons of fun and you will have an opportunity to visit with authors you want to know more about and get your books signed.
The program will wrap up at 4:45pm so you can go home and read a good book!
This not-for-women-only event promises something for everyone!
