Join us for a live Skype session with two nationally bestselling authors for our annual Book Lover's Night Out April 24th from 5:00-8:00. We will meet at Viewpoint for book recommendations, have a catered dinner at the Visitors Center, and then Skype with the authors. 

Karen Joy Fowler, author of We are All Completely Beside Ourselves, will precede Susannah Cahalan, author of Brain on Fire: My Month Of Madness.

In Fowler's book, six year old Rosemary's family falls apart when her sister Fern is sent away. The two were inseparable, and Rosemary's quest to find out what happened to Fern and why leads to the reader's discovery of a secret revealed deep into the novel. Fowler is also the author of the best seller, The Jane Austen Book Club, which was made into a movie. 

Cahalan's book is the harrowing account of when at twenty four she woke up alone in a hospital room, strapped to her bed and unable to move or speak, and had no memory of how she’d gotten there. Days earlier, she had been on the threshold of a new, adult life: at the beginning of her first serious relationship and a promising career at a major New York newspaper. Now she was labeled violent, psychotic, a flight risk. What happened?

Tickets for the event are $40 and include the meal and your choice of either book. They are available at Viewpoint and are limited so please get them early.
