Theres only one person who has ever truly understood fourteen-year-old June Elbus, and thats her uncle, the renowned painter Finn Weiss. Shy at school and distant from her older sister, June can only be herself in Finns company; he is her godfather, confidant, and best friend. So when he dies, far too young, of a mysterious illness her mother can barely speak about, Junes world is turned upside down. But Finns death brings a surprise acquaintance into Junes life - someone who will help her to heal and to question what she thinks she knows about Finn, her family, and even her own heart.

Author Event: Randy Susan Meyers

Please join us in welcoming author Randy Susan Meyers to the Nevins Memorial Library!

Her most recent novel, Accidents of Marriage received a starred review from Kirkus who wrote "Beautifully written, poignant and thought-provoking, this novel refuses to succumb to stereotypical reader expectations, making it even more memorable."

Meyers' debut novel, The Murderer's Daughters, was a finalist for the Massachusetts Book Awards, named a "Must Read Book" and one of the "2011 Ten Best Works of Fiction" by the Massachusetts Center for the Book. It was also a nationwideTarget Book Club Pick.

Meyers' second novel, The Comfort of Lies, was defined by the Boston Globe as "Sharp and biting, and sometimes wickedly funny when the author skewers Boston's class and neighborhood dividing lines, but it has a lot of heart, too."

Meyers is a founding member of Beyond the Margins, a multi-writer site dedicated to the craft of writing and the business of publishing. She is also a regular contributor at The Huffington Post and teaches at Grub Street Writing Center.
