Book Lovers Author Hour---Meet Mona Simpson

Monday, August 29, 2011 - 12:00pm - 2:30pm

Meet the authors of the next great read! Simpson’s “My Hollywood” tells the story of two women whose lives entwine and unfold behind the glittery surface of Hollywood. Claire, a composer and a new mother, comes to LA so her husband can follow his passion for writing television comedy. Suddenly the marriage—once a genuine 50/50 arrangement—changes, with Paul working long hours and Claire left at home with a baby, William, whom she adores but has no idea how to care for. Lola, a fifty-two-year-old mother of five who is working in America to pay for her own children’s higher education back in the Philippines, becomes their nanny. “My Hollywood” is a tender, witty, and resonant novel filled with razor sharp observations about life and parenthood. Please register. Box lunch will be served. Book sale and signing will follow the program courtesy of Lake Forest Book Store.
