Join us for a co-sponsored event with the Friends of the Simsbury Library!

The Friends of the Simsbury Public Library and are happy to co-sponsor with the Avon Public Library an author program with New York Times bestselling author Mary Beth Keane. Ms. Keane will discuss her latest novel, The Half-Moon, about a couple in a small town navigating the complexities of marriage, family, and longing. The Half Moon tells the story of Malcolm and Jess Gephardt’s romance—falling in love, marriage, the buzz of hope for babies and businesses, the crush of betrayal, and how fragile allegiances and relationships can be. Sure to be another book club favorite “Keane’s prose is luminous and controlled, brimming with insights into her nuanced characters . . . a gripping read with an unexpected and satisfying resolution.” —The Minneapolis Star Tribune.
