Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Anna Quindlen's novels and her witty and insightful New York Times and Newsweek columns on politics, social justice and family idiosyncrasies have captivated readers for more than 40 years. Fans and critics alike have praised her books, including One True Thing, which was adapted into an Oscar-nominated movie starring Meryl Streep, as well as Blessings, Black and Blue and A Short Guide to a Happy Life. Her latest novel, Miller's Valley, is about a family whose story you will not forget and a young girl who struggles to escape her parents, siblings and friends even while she knows how deeply she's shaped and loved by them. Even at a tender age, Mimi Miller knows that home is "a place where it's just as easy to feel lost as it is to feel content." Quindlen has once again written an emotionally powerful novel driven by universal family struggles. See her live when she comes to the Commonwealth Club to discuss the book with Kelly Corrigan, author of Glitter and Glue.
