Steven Rowley Author of The Editor - Thursday, May 16th @ 7PM
{pages} is very pleased to welcome author Steven Rowley as he discusses his new novel, The Editor.

From the bestselling author of Lily and the Octopus comes a novel about a struggling writer who gets his big break, with a little help from the most famous woman in America.

After years of trying to make it as a writer in 1990s New York City, James Smale finally sells his novel to an editor at a major publishing house: none other than Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Jackie or Mrs. Onassis, as she's known in the office has fallen in love with James's candidly autobiographical novel, one that exposes his own dysfunctional family. But when the books forthcoming publication threatens to unravel already fragile relationships, both within his family and with his partner, James finds that he can't bring himself to finish the manuscript.

Jackie and James develop an unexpected friendship, and she pushes him to write an authentic ending, encouraging him to head home to confront the truth about his relationship with his mother. Then a long-held family secret is revealed, and he realizes his editor may have had a larger plan that goes beyond the page

From the bestselling author of "Lily and the Octopus" comes a funny, poignant, and highly original novel about an author whose relationship with his very famous book editor will change him forever, both as a writer and a son.

Steven is always a staff favorite and we are so pleased to welcome him back to {pages} for a fun and engaging discussion.

Ticket price includes a copy of the book.
