Diesel, A Bookstore in Malibu welcomes the Malibu Book Group back to the store to discuss The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown on Wednesday, March 12th at 4:45 pm.
The Andreas family is one of readers. Their father, a renowned Shakespeare professor who speaks almost entirely in verse, has named his three daughters after famous Shakespearean women. When the sisters return to their childhood home, ostensibly to care for their ailing mother (but really to lick their wounds and bury their secrets), each is horrified to find the others there. Sure, they love each other. They just don't happen to like each other very much. But the sisters soon discover that everything they've been running from — one another, their small hometown, themselves — might offer more than they ever expected.
Unless otherwise listed, the Malibu Book Group meets on the second Wednesday of each month at 4:45pm at our Malibu store. Meetings are free and open to the public, so come on down!

Bestselling Author Eleanor Brown Speaking and Signing The Weird Sisters A New York Times bestseller in hardcover, The Weird Sisters has earned raves from Sarah Blake, Helen Simonson, and reviewers everywhere-the story of three sisters who love each other, but just don't happen to like each other very much. We're excited to welcome Eleanor Brown to BookPeople in celebration of the novel's paperback release.
Three sisters have returned to their childhood home, where books are a passion and TV is something other people watch. Their father-a professor of Shakespeare who speaks almost exclusively in verse-named them after the Bard's heroines. The sisters have a hard time communicating with their parents and their lovers, but especially with one another. What can the shy homebody eldest sister, the fast-living middle child, and the bohemian youngest sibling have in common? Only that none has found life to be what was expected; and now, faced with their parents' frailty and their own personal disappointments, not even a book can solve what ails them...
Eleanor Brown's writing has been published in anthologies, magazines, and journals. She holds an M.A. in Literature and works in education in South Florida but will be living in the Denver area at pub date.
This event is free and open to the public. In order to have anything signed at a BookPeople event a copy of the event book must be purchased from BookPeople. If you purchase your book from BookPeople in advance of the event, please save your receipt and present it at the event.
Thank you for supporting Eleanor Brown and your local independent bookstore!

Here, books are a passion (there is no problem a library card can't solve) and TV is something other people watch. Their father - a professor of Shakespeare who speaks almost exclusively in verse - named them after the Bard's heroines. It's a lot to live up to.
