Emma Straub Luncheon - Friday, May 15th at 11:30 am
{pages} a bookstore is very pleased to be hosting a luncheon for author Emma Straub who will be celebrating the publication of her brand new novel, We Are All Adults Here.  The luncheon will be held at Petros Restaurant and will include a signed copy of the hard cover book.  We hope you can join us.

Emma Straub's unique alchemy of wisdom, humor, and insight come together in a deeply satisfying story about adult siblings, aging parents, high school boyfriends, middle school mean girls, the lifelong effects of birth order, and all the other things that follow us into adulthood ~ whether we like them to or not.

Featuring an ensemble cast of lively characters, spanning three generations - Staub has the honed chops to relate to all those readers effectively.

More about the book:

A totally engaging and smart book about the absolutely marvelous messiness of what makes up family; a wonderful book. - Elizabeth Strout, New York Times bestselling and Pulitzer Prize winning author of Olive Kitteridge and Olive, Again

A warm, funny, and keenly perceptive novel about the life cycle of one familyas the kids become parents, grandchildren become teenagers, and a matriarch confronts the legacy of her mistakes. From the New York Times bestselling author of Modern Lovers and The Vacationers.

When Astrid Strick witnesses a school bus accident in the center of town, it jostles loose a repressed memory from her young parenting days decades earlier. Suddenly, Astrid realizes she was not quite the parent she thought shed been to her three, now-grown children. But to what consequence?

Astrids youngest son is drifting and unfocused, making parenting mistakes of his own. Her daughter is pregnant yet struggling to give up her own adolescence. And her eldest seems to measure his adult life according to standards no one else shares. But who gets to decide, so many years later, which long-ago lapses were the ones that mattered? Who decides which apologies really count? It might be that only Astrids thirteen-year-old granddaughter and her new friend really understand the courage it takes to tell the truth to the people you love the most.

In All Adults Here, Emma Straubs unique alchemy of wisdom, humor, and insight come together in a deeply satisfying story about adult siblings, aging parents, high school boyfriends, middle school mean girls, the lifelong effects of birth order, and all the other things that follow us into adulthood, whether we like them to or not.
