Author Talk & Booksigning with NYT-bestselling author Garth Stein! (28th Street)
Schuler Books & Music, Wednesday, April 22 at 7pm
Join us in the studio for a discussion and signing with bestselling author Garth Stein for his newest novel A sudden light. Stein’s last novel, The Art of Racing in the Rain, was a smash success, having sold more than 4 million copies in 35 languages, and having spent more than three years on the New York Times bestseller list. A sudden light (released 9/2014), is a spellbinding, atmospheric work rich with unconventional characters, scenes of transcendent natural beauty, and unforgettable moments of emotional truth that reflect Garth’s outsized capacity for empathy and keen understanding of human motivation. As a special incentive to local book clubs, the book group that has the most members in attendance at this event will win a set of 6 copies of The Art of Racing in the Rain for their next meeting! About A sudden light: A family confronts long-buried secrets as it struggles for forgiveness and redemption in this breathtaking story set against the majestic beauty of the Pacific Northwest. In the summer of 1990, fourteen-year-old Trevor Riddell gets his first glimpse of Riddell House. Built from the spoils of a massive timber fortune, the legendary family mansion is constructed of giant whole trees and is set on a huge estate overlooking Seattle’s Puget Sound. Trevor’s bankrupt parents have begun a trial separation, and his father, Jones Riddell, has brought Trevor to Riddell House with a goal: to join forces with his sister, Serena, dispatch the ailing and elderly Grandpa Samuel to a nursing home, sell off the house and property for development, divide up the profits, and live happily ever after. But as Trevor explores the house’s secret stairways and hidden rooms, he discovers a spirit lingering in Riddell House whose agenda is at odds with the family plan. Only Trevor’s willingness to face the dark past of his forefathers will reveal the key to his family’s future. A sudden light is a spellbinding, atmospheric work rich with unconventional characters, scenes of transcendent natural beauty, and unforgettable moments of emotional truth that reflect Garth’s outsized capacity for empathy and keen understanding of human motivation.
