Jane Green, the “undisputed queen of the beach read,” will discuss and sign copies of her new novel THE SUNSHINE SISTERS (Berkley), in conversation with fellow Penguin Random House author Jean Hanff Korelitz, on Tuesday, June 27, at 7:30 p.m. at Books are Magic in Brooklyn.
THE SUNSHINE SISTERS tells the story of three estranged sisters who return home upon the news of their mother’s serious illness. Although the three have never been close, they come together as they attempt to fulfill their mother’s last wishes—all while fighting through old jealousies and unspoken secret fears. The book has already been praised by People
as “a warm, satisfying tale” and The Washington Post
as a novel “with clear prose . . . a breezy story.”
The author of eighteen novels, seventeen of which are New York Times
bestsellers, Ms. Green has books published in over thirty-one languages that have sold more than ten million copies globally. Her other works include FALLING
(Berkley), THE BEACH HOUSE
(Berkley), and DUNE ROAD
Formerly a UK journalist, Ms. Green used to have a radio show on BBC Radio London, and regularly appeared on shows such as Good Morning America, The Martha Stewart Show,
and The Today Show
. Additionally, she has been a part of the ABC news team, does regular keynote speaking, and has a weekly column in England’s longest running weekly magazine. Ms. Green, a cancer survivor, says she believes that “gratitude and focusing on the good in life is the secret to happiness,” a sentiment that certainly rings true in many of her novels.
