Mendham Books invites us to join them to welcome legendary author Anna Quindlen, who will be signing copies of her forthcoming novel, Every Last One, this Wednesday, April 21st at 7:00 PM.

Over the last 30 years, Anna Quindlen’s work has appeared in some of America’s most influential newspapers, many of its best-known magazines, and on both fiction and non-fiction bestseller lists. She is a novelist and also writes the prestigious “Last Word” column in Newsweek magazine.

In Every Last One, a breathtaking and beautiful novel, she creates an unforgettable portrait of a mother, a father, a family, and the explosive, violent consequences of what seem like inconsequential actions. Mary Beth Latham is first and foremost a mother, whose three teenaged children come first, before her career as a landscape gardener, or even her life as the wife of a doctor. Caring for her family and preserving their everyday life is paramount. And so, when one of her sons, Max, becomes depressed, Mary Beth becomes focused on him, and is blindsided by a shocking act of violence. What happens afterwards is a testament to the power of a woman’s love and determination, and to the invisible line of hope and healing that connects one human being with another.

London has a softball game on Wednesday night, but I think I’ll bring the girls, softball uniforms and all, to Mendham Books to get my autographed copy of Every Last One.
