EVENT OVERVIEW: Maria Semple, New York Times Bestselling Author of Where’d You Go Bernadette, will be In Conversation with Vivien Jennings about Maria's New Hardcover Novel Today Will Be Different.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Maria Semple's first Novel, This One Is Mine, was set in Los Angeles, where she also wrote for Television Shows such as Arrested Development, Mad About You, and Ellen. She escaped from Los Angeles and now lives with her family in Seattle. Her second Novel Where’d You Go Bernadette was a New York Times Best Book of The Year and an International Bestseller.
ABOUT THE NEW BOOK: Eleanor knows she's a mess. But today, she will tackle the little things. She will shower and get dressed. She will have her poetry and yoga lessons after dropping off her son, Timby. She won't swear. She will initiate sex with her husband, Joe. But before she can put her modest plan into action-life happens. Today, it turns out, is the day Timby has decided to fake sick to weasel his way into his mother's company. It's also the day Joe has chosen to tell his office-but not Eleanor-that he's on vacation. Just when it seems like things can't go more awry, an encounter with a former colleague produces a graphic memoir whose dramatic tale threatens to reveal a buried family secret. Today Will Be Different is a hilarious, heart-filled story about reinvention, sisterhood, and how sometimes it takes facing up to our former selves to truly begin living.
