Sarah Healy: House of Wonder *book launch* (Burlington)
Phoenix Books Burlington, Thursday, September 4 at 7pm
Join us to celebrate the release of Sarah Healy's new novel, House of Wonder!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Sarah Healy is the author of Can I Get an Amen? and House of Wonder (September 2, 2014). Her work has appeared in the New York Times and on NPR. She lives in Vermont with her husband and children and is currently at work on her third novel.

ABOUT THE BOOK: Theirs wasn't always the misfit family in the neighborhood. Jenna Parsons's childhood was one of block parties and barbecues, where her mother, a former beauty queen, continued her reign and her twin brother, Warren, was viewed as just another oddball kid. But as her mother's shopaholic habits intensified, and her brother's behavior became viewed as more strange than quirky, Jenna sought to distance herself from them. She is devoted to her career and her four-year-old daughter, Rose. But now, in his peculiar way, Warren summons her back to 62 Royal Court. What she finds there--a house in disrepair, a neighborhood on tenterhooks over a rash of petty thefts, and evidence of past traumas her mother has kept hidden--will challenge Jenna as never before. But as she stands by her family, she also begins to find beauty in unexpected places, strength in unlikely people, and a future she couldn't have imagined.

"With keen insight and rare emotional truth, Sarah Healy hits every mark with House of Wonder. It's funny, sad, hopeful, and heartbreaking and filled with characters that stick with you and make you care. If you've ever known an outsider or an oddball--or been one--this is a novel for you." --Augusten Burroughs, New York Times bestselling author of Running with Scissors and Sellevision.
