Venue: Left Bank Books - Central West End Join us for a paired reading with two fantastic writers! St. Louisan Susan McBride, author of Little Black Dress and The Cougar Club, gives us a deliciously emotional story of family, forgiveness, love and magic. In The Truth about Love and Lightning, the tornado that just ripped through Gretchen's land has nothing on the storm caused by the return of her pregnant daughter, a man with no memory showing up on their doorstep, and Gretchen's not-so-little white lie that's about to catch up with her. Jenny Milchman--a suspense author, popular blogger, and founder of Take Your Child to a Bookstore Day--shows us that beneath the cover of snow lies a powerful conspiracy when Nora wakes up one wintry morning in her old mountain farmhouse to find that her husband has committed suicide. Unraveling his final days, Nora searches for answers--but meets with bewildering resistance from his best friend and partner, his fellow police officers, and his mother.
