Join us for a "pre-cruise" cocktail hour!

We are absolutely wild about Jonathan Evison's upcoming novel, This is Your Life, Harriet Chance, and know that you will want to be here Tuesday, Sept. 8, at 7pm, for his book launch. As a bonus, if you preorder the book from us, you will get a ticket for a "pre-cruise" cocktail hour at the book store right before the event! Click here to order your book and ticket!

With her husband Bernard two years in the grave, 78-year-old Harriet Chance sets sail on an ill-conceived Alaskan cruise only to discover that she s been living the past 60 years of her life under entirely false pretenses. There, amid the buffets and lounge singers, between the imagined appearance of her late husband and the very real arrival of her estranged daughter, Harriet is forced to take a long look back, confronting the truth about pivotal events that changed the course of her life.

"Once again, Jonathan Evison dazzles . . . This Is Your Life, Harriet Chance! is as sweet as it is inventive, profound as it is hilarious, unflinching as it is bighearted." -- Maria Semple, author of Where'd You Go, Bernadette?
