"Dear Evan Hansen: The Novel" with Val Emmich, presented by Joseph-Beth Booksellers
Co-written with Steven Levenson, Benj Pasek, and Justin Paul, the creators of the hit Broadway musical "Dear Evan Hansen", Val Emmich's new novel follows the story of socially anxious high school senior Evan Hansen. When a letter that was never meant to be seen by anyone draws Evan into a family's grief over the loss of their son, he is given the chance of a lifetime: to belong. He just has to stick to a lie he never meant to tell, that the notoriously troubled Connor Murphy was his secret best friend. Suddenly, Evan isn't invisible anymore. And Connor's parents have taken him in like he was their own, desperate to know more about their enigmatic son from his closest friend. As Evan gets pulled deeper into their swirl of anger, regret, and confusion, he knows that what he's doing can't be right, but if he's helping people, how wrong can it be?
Val Emmich is a writer, singer-songwriter, and actor. He has had recurring roles on Vinyl and Ugly Betty as well as a memorable guest role as Liz Lemon's coffee-boy fling, Jamie, on 30 Rock. His debut novel, The Reminders, was a B&N Discover selection that Library Journal called "quirky, touching and addictive."
