Laura McBride, 'Round Midnight
From the author of We Are Called to Rise comes a novel about the interconnected lives of four women in Las Vegas, each of whom experiences a life-changing moment at a classic casino nightclub.

Spanning the six decades when Las Vegas grew from a dusty gambling town into the melting pot metropolis it is today, Round Midnight is the story of four womenone who falls in love, one who gets lucky, one whose heart is broken, and one who chooses happinesswhose lives change at the Midnight Room.

There is June, who abandons her east coast roots to found a casino empire in Las Vegas in the 1950s. There is Honorata, a Filipina mail-order bride who wins a jackpot in Junes casino. There is Coral, an African-American schoolteacher whose birth is shrouded in mystery. And there is Engracia, a young mother who leaves Mexico to seek a new life for her child. Spanning six decades, novelist Patry Francis calls the tale that knits them together compelling, transporting and deeply wise.

Margot Livesey says it is a passionate, gripping and beautifully written novel, and author Joanna Rakoff writes: Im not one to pull out the term Great American Novel, but Laura McBrides sublime Round Midnight demands nothing less. Gorgeous, engrossing, moving, and at times wickedly funny, this brilliant novel pulled me in and didnt let me go until the shattering final sentence. This is the novel you need to read right now.

Each ticket guarantees readers a copy of 'Round Midnight and a guaranteed seat at the talk/signing.
