Anna Quindlen: After Annie
Presented by Books & Books and TBAM
Join us for a conversation with Pulitzer Prize winning columnist and New York Times bestselling author Anna Quindlen. Her trademark wisdom on family, friendship, and the ties that bind us are at the center of After Annie, her newest novel about the power of love to transcend loss and triumph over adversity.
When Annie Brown dies suddenly, her husband, her children, and her closest friend are left to find a way forward without the woman who has been the lynchpin of all their lives.
Over the course of the next year what saves them all is Annie, ever-present in their minds, loving but not sentimental, caring but nobody’s fool, a voice in their heads that is funny and sharp and remarkably clear. The power she has given to those who loved her is the power to go on without her.
