The watch was one of my favorite fiction reads last year.  The story describes a sentinel event for the characters during the Afghan war.  Each chapter tells the same event from a different characters point of view.  My heart raced and pounded as if I were present.

Patry Francis in conversation with Susan Messer, "All the Children Are Home"

 

(Patry's headshot by: Kristin Young)

Event is free, but pre-registration is required. Please e-mail words@bookcellarinc.com with the subject "Patry Francis RSVP" to reserve your spot. Access credentials will be sent on the day of the event.

About All the Children Are HomeIt is the late 1950s and Dahlia and Louie Moscatelli are an ordinary couple who still live in the Massachusetts mill town where they grew up. However, they have built their marriage around a harrowing secret that has left Dahlia a prisoner in her own home, forever wary of the limitations of a girl’s life, and unable to bear children of her own. When she decides to become a foster mother, she has three rules: no newborns, no delinquents, and above all, no girls.

It’s not long before all Dahlia’s rules are flouted and the Moscatellis commit to raising three long-term placements. Jimmy, the eldest, is terrified by a fear of becoming his biological father – a homeless alcoholic whose name keeps turning up in the court report. Next comes Zaidie, precocious and responsible beyond her years, who arrives clinging to her baby brother Jon’s s hand, and the deathbed promise she made to her mother that she would always take care of him.   

However, it is the last child to enter the family who will challenge them most. Six-year-old Agnes is an indigenous girl who arrives as a “temporary” emergency placement. After years of extreme abuse and neglect in her former homes, Agnes has never experienced normal family life, or learned to speak properly and suffers from debilitating asthma. But inside this wounded child is an unbroken spirit that will profoundly change their lives and inspire everyone who encounters her. Heartfelt and engrossing, ALL THE CHILDREN ARE HOME is a deeply moving novel about the real meaning of family, and the incredible resilience of the human spirit.

Marisa Silver ("The Mysteries") and Amity Gaige ("Sea Wife") in conversation with Sarah Shun-lien Bynum

(Marisa's headshot by: Bader Howar)

Event is free, but pre-registration is required. Please e-mail words@bookcellarinc.com with the subject "Marisa Silver and Amity Gaige RSVP" to reserve your spot. Access credentials will be sent on the day of the event.

About The Mysteries: Miggy Brenneman is a wild and reckless seven-year-old with a fierce imagination, hellbent on pushing against the limits of childhood. Ellen is polite, cautious, and drawn to her friend's bright flame. While the adults around them adjust to unstable times and fractured relationships, the girls respond with increasingly dangerous play. When tragedy strikes, all the novel's characters grapple with questions of fate and individual responsibility, none more so than Miggy, who must make sense of a swiftly disappearing past and a radically transformed future.

Written with searing clarity and surpassing tenderness, The Mysteries limns the painful ambiguities of adulthood and the intense perceptions of an indelibly drawn child to offer a profound exploration of how all of us, at every stage, must reckon with life's abundant and unsolvable mysteries.

About Marisa Silver: Marisa Silver is the author of six previous works of fiction, including the novels Mary Coin, a New York Times Bestseller, and Little Nothing, a New York Times Editor’s Choice. Her short fiction has appeared in The New Yorker and been included in The Best American Short Stories and The O. Henry Prize Stories. Silver has received fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation and the New York Public Library’s Cullman Center. She teaches at the MFA Program for Writers at Warren Wilson College.

About Sea Wife: Juliet is failing to juggle motherhood and her stalled-out dissertation on confessional poetry when her husband, Michael, informs her that he wants to leave his job and buy a sailboat. With their two kids--Sybil, age seven, and George, age two--Juliet and Michael set off for Panama, where their forty-four foot sailboat awaits them.

The initial result is transformative; the marriage is given a gust of energy, Juliet emerges from her depression, and the children quickly embrace the joys of being at sea. The vast horizons and isolated islands offer Juliet and Michael reprieve - until they are tested by the unforeseen. A transporting novel about marriage, family and love in a time of unprecedented turmoil, Sea Wife is unforgettable in its power and astonishingly perceptive in its portrayal of optimism, disillusionment, and survival.

About Amity Gaige: Amity Gaige is the author of four novels, O My DarlingThe Folded WorldSchroder, and Sea Wife.  Sea Wife was a 2020 New York Times Notable Book and an Elle Best Book of 2020.  Her previous novel, Schroder, was named one of Best Books of 2013 by The New York Times Book ReviewWashington PostThe Wall Street Journal, among others, and was shortlisted for UK’s Rathbones Folio Prize in 2014.  Sea Wife and Schroder have been translated into a combined 18 languages.  Amity is the winner of a Fulbright Fellowship, fellowships at the MacDowell and Yaddo colonies, and a 2016 Guggenheim Fellowship in Fiction.  Her short stories, essays, and book reviews have appeared in publications such as The New York Times, The Guardian, Die Welt, Harper’s Bazaar, Lit Hub, and elsewhere.  She lives in West Hartford, CT, with her family, and teaches creative writing at Yale.

About Sarah Shun-lien Bynum: Sarah Shun-lien Bynum is the author of two novels—Ms. Hempel Chronicles, a finalist for the PEN/Faulkner Award, and Madeleine Is Sleeping, a finalist for the National Book Award and winner of the Janet Heidinger Kafka Prize—and a story collection, Likes, a finalist for the Story Prize and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize. Her fiction has appeared in many magazines and anthologies, including The New YorkerPloughsharesTin House, and The Best American Short Stories. The recipient of an O. Henry Award, a Whiting Award, and an NEA Fellowship, she was named one of “20 Under 40” fiction writers by The New Yorker. She lives in Los Angeles.
