Christina Baker Kline Author Talk

Join us at The Stamford Ferguson Library Saturday February 25th @ 3PM

Her latest book,

A Piece of the World


“A Piece of the World is the decoding of a 20th century mystery, for who has not gazed on Wyeth’s picture and wondered, why does that girl have so very far to go? Kline’s gift is to dispense with the fustiness and fact-clogged drama that can weigh down some historical novels to tell a pure, powerful story of suffering met with a fight. In fiction, in her quiet way, Christina triumphs – and so does this novel.”  – O Magazine

2.5 million copies in print•A #1 international bestseller, published in 40 countries•More than 2 years on the New York Times, USA Today, and national Indie bestseller lists• 5 weeks at #1 on the NYT list, over a year in the top 5

What makes a small independent bookstore so special?

 The booksellers who help keep us ticking.

All our booksellers are readers, a characteristic you may not find in the big box stores.
We are lucky when we find college and high school booksellers who are enthusiastic readers. When we do we don't let them go. Kerinne is headed back to college, but we'll see her again during her vacation time.
Check out the pile of books she read this summer!
Good luck this year!!
See you soon.
