September is an action packed month on Book Club Girl on Air, with a show every week of the month! On September 10th we're joined by Tom Piazza who will discuss his novel of Hurricane Katrina, City of Refuge. On September 14th, Jacqueline Sheehan, author of Lost & Found joins us to discuss her new novel Now & Then. And on September 24th, acclaimed writer Francine Prose joins us to discuss her newest novel, now out in paperback, Goldengrove.
After the sudden death of her beloved older sister, thirteen-year-old Nico finds her life on New England's idyllic Mirror Lake irrevocably altered. Left alone to grope toward understanding, she falls into a seductive, dangerous relationship with her sister's boyfriend. Over one haunted summer, Nico faces that life-changing moment when children realize their parents can no longer help them as she experiences the mystery of loss and recovery. Still, for all the darkness at its heart, Goldengrove is radiant with the lightness of summer and charged by the restless sexual tension of adolescence.
