Award-winning author to visit Greenwich Library

On Tuesday, July 15 at 7 p.m., [email protected] Library and Diane’s Books will present a talk with Greenwich resident Beatriz Williams in the library’s meeting room.

The New York Times best-selling author of A Hundred Summers returns to Greenwich Library to discuss her new novel, The Secret Life of Violet Grant, a story of passion, redemption and a battered suitcase full of mysteries.

According to the library, Ms. Williams, “Takes secrets to a whole new level in The Secret Life of Violet Grant as we dance with Violet in 1914 and Vivian in 1964. The brilliant maze Ms. Williams has created keeps us running in circles, loving the complex characters, clever repartee, and all the twists and turns. ‘Darling, she was my sister. My older sister, Violet. A scientist. She murdered her husband in Berlin in 1914 and ran off with her lover and nobody has heard from her since.’  It’s clever, devious and delightful.”

The critics agree. According to Booklist, “Williams conjures up another substantive beach read steeped in history and familial intrigue…. Readers will love wallowing in the twists and turns of this irresistibly luxurious tale.”

Ms. Williams’ debut novel Overseas became an international sensation, while the New York Times best seller A Hundred Summers probed classic themes of love in a Depression-era tale. Her books have been translated into 12 different languages. She lives with her husband and children in Greenwich, where she jokes that she divides her time between writing and laundry.

Books will be available for purchase and signing through co-sponsor Diane’s Books. This series is open to all at no charge, but seating in the meeting room is limited and will be available on a first come, first served basis. Refreshments will be served following the talk. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m.
