Featured Author Event: Emma Straub

emma straub1Bestselling Penguin Random House authors Emma Straub and Meg Wolitzer will appear at Barnes & Noble on the Upper West Side on Tuesday (5/31), at 7pm for a discussion and celebration of Straub’s highly anticipated new novel MODERN LOVERS, which goes on sale from Riverhead Books on May 31st.


Emma Straub is the author of the New York Times bestseller THE VACATIONERS and LAURA LAMONT’S LIFE IN PICTURES. THE VACATIONERS became a must-have beach read in 2015 and with its promising advance praise, Straub’s latest novel MODERN LOVERS is making its way on to the beach-ready book lists of summer, 2016. With reviews pouring in from Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, Huffington Post, and many more, MODERN LOVERS looks to be another hit for Straub who packs wisdom and humor into this coming of age novel for adults. Set against a Brooklyn summer backdrop, the characters in MODERN LOVERS are friends and former college bandmates who learn what it means to finally grow up as their children reach maturity and the passions and secrets from their own youth follow them into their middle-age years.
