NORWALK, Conn. – Alice Adams, author of the recently published "Invincible Summer," which has the perfect title for the season, will be the star of the next AuthorSpeak program at the Norwalk Public Library.
The AuthorSpeak program will be held on Monday, Aug. 1, at noon, in the Main Auditorium. A light lunch will be provided courtesy of the library.
Hailed as a dazzling depiction of the highs and lows of adulthood, "Invincible Summer" is a story about finding the courage to carry on in the wake of disappointment, and a powerful testament to love and friendship as the constants in an ever-changing world.
The story follows four college friends as their 20s give way to their 30s, and the group struggles to navigate their thwarted dreams. Scattered across Europe and no longer convinced they are truly masters of their own fates, the once close-knit friends are filled with longing for their youth and each other. Broken hearts and broken careers draw the foursome together again, but in ways they never could have imagined.
Alice Adams, who is half Australian, has lived in England for most of her life, growing up in a house without a TV and as a result becoming a voracious reader.
Career-wise, she has done everything from waitressing to investment banking. In addition to having a bachelor's degree in philosophy, she has a multitude of “geeky” math, finance, and computer qualifications. Adams lives in North London, but escapes into the wilderness as often as possible. "Invincible Summer" is her first novel and she’s hard at work on a second.
To register for this program, or for additional information, contact Cynde Bloom Lahey, Director of Library Information Services, at 203-899-2780 ext. 15133, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
