Annie Barrows - "The Truth According to Us"
Warwick's, Tuesday, June 9 at 7:30pm
Warwick's is hosting New York Times bestselling author Annie Barrows on Tuesday, June 9th at 7:30pm to present her newest novel, The Truth According to Us. Annie Barrows is the co-author of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. She is also the author of the bestselling children’s series Ivy and Bean. This event is free and open to the public. Reserved Seating is available. Only books purchased from Warwick's will be signed. Please call the Warwick's Book Dept. (858) 454-0347 for details. In the summer of 1938, spoiled senator’s daughter Layla Beck is suddenly cast adrift by her angry father. Forced to take a job on the Federal Writers’ Project, a New Deal program, she finds herself assigned to write a history of the small mill town of Macedonia, West Virginia. Perfectly certain that she will go mad with boredom, Layla’s expectations take a sharp turn when she meets the Romeyn family, particularly the town pariah, Felix Romeyn. Very soon Layla’s research develops a distinctively personal flavor.

Meanwhile, inside the Romeyn house, twelve-year-old Willa is using her newly found virtues of ferocity and devotion to thread her way through a thicket of mysteries, including the questionable business that occupies her father and the reason her beloved aunt Jottie remains unmarried. But all roads lead—for both Layla and Willa—to a single event that changed Macedonia and the Romeyns forever.
