A Discussion with Sandra Moran
Giovanni's Room, Thursday, July 31 at 5:30pm
Join us as we host acclaimed author Sandra Moran to discuss the making of her new award-winning book Letters Never Sent.

"The story unfolds like a flower; the impact of it on each person is profound. It’s a spectacular offering of love gained, lost, and struggled with over a lifetime—a poignant tale with a marvelous reveal at the end." —Anna Furtado, Lambda Literary Review

"Letters Never Sent is a crisp, well-written story that is chock full of strong imagery, indelible characters, and conflict that almost any woman can relate to in one way or another. Her transitions between the past and present work seamlessly, and she is able to capture the floodwaters of joy, love, heartbreak, and sorrow with unhurried profundity." -- Salem West, The Rainbow Reader

Letters Never Sent is the winner of the 2013 Rainbow Award for Best Lesbian Historical Fiction and the 2013 Rainbow Award for Best Lesbian Debut Novel. It was also a runner-up for the Best Lesbian Novel. Letters Never Sent is a finalist for the Edmund White Award for Debut Fiction in the 26th Annual Triangle Awards.

Sandra will give a reading from the book and discuss the research that went into the book, including a study of the political atmosphere of the 1930s, '40s, and '50s.

Letters Never Sent is available in paperback for $16.95 here:http://www.queerbooks.com/book/9781939562104
