in conversation with Kate Flannery
Join New York Times bestselling author of The Nest, Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney in-conversation with actor, singer, and writer, Kate Flannery, best known for her 9 seasons as Meredith on NBC’s THE OFFICE , for an exclusive event, hosted in collaboration with independent bookstores across the U.S.. This will be a lively conversation between friends to mark the publication of Sweeney’s highly anticipated second novel GOOD COMPANY.
IMPORTANT: Participation in this special event requires ordering a copy of GOOD COMPANY from Chevalier's Books (linked above). Chevalier's will send you a link and a password to access the event via Crowdcast closer to the event date on April 8.
Much of what made The Nest beloved is back in play with GOOD COMPANY, including Sweeney’s distinctive wit and her incisive examination of the way people, and their relationships--with others and themselves--evolve over decades. The novel follows two couples entering the midpoint of their lives, against the backdrop of the New York theater scene and Hollywood. The novel tells a story of what it means to “truly love but never truly know another person,” as Sweeney says in her own words.
"Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney plumbs the depths of marriage, motherhood, and friendship with warmth and wit. I devoured it in one gulp! Treat yourself to some Good Company.”—Maria Semple, Author of Where’d You Go, Bernadette
