Salon@615 Special Edition with Jojo Moyes author of The Giver of Stars Salon@615 is pleased to present Me Before You author Jojo Moyes for her highly anticipated new novel, The Giver of Stars. This ticketed event will take place in the Dead Poets Society room in Lowry Hall at Montgomery Bell Academy. Tickets are required, and there are two ticketing options: a single ticket, which admits one person and comes with one copy of Giver of Stars, or a two ticket bundle, which admits two people but comes with ONE copy of Giver of Stars. Moyes will be joined in conversation by Mary Laura Philpott, and a signing line will follow the presentation. Set in Depression-era America, a breathtaking story of five extraordinary women and their remarkable journey through the mountains of Kentucky and beyond, from the author of Me Before You and The Peacock Emporium. Alice Wright marries handsome American Bennett Van Cleve hoping to escape her stifling life in England. But small-town Kentucky quickly proves equally claustrophobic, especially living alongside her overbearing father-in-law. So when a call goes out for a team of women to deliver books as part of Eleanor Roosevelt's new traveling library, Alice signs on enthusiastically. The leader, and soon Alice's greatest ally, is Margery, a smart-talking, self-sufficient woman who's never asked a man's permission for anything. They will be joined by three other singular women who become known as the Horseback Librarians of Kentucky. What happens to them--and to the men they love--becomes a classic drama of loyalty, justice, humanity and passion. Though they face all kinds of dangers, they're committed to their job--bringing books to people who have never had any, sharing the gift of learning that will change their lives. Based on a true story rooted in America's past, The Giver of Stars is unparalleled in its scope. At times funny, at others heartbreaking, this is a richly rewarding novel of women's friendship, of true love, and of what happens when we reach beyond our grasp for the great beyond.
