Little City Books is located at 100 Bloomfield St.
Grow’s stories have appeared in The Writer’s Chronicle, Other Voices, The Sun Magazine, Indiana Review and many others. Her debut collection, “My Life as a Mermaid,” takes a look at the dark side of what it means to live “happily ever after.”
Leavitt is the New York Times bestselling author of “Is This Tomorrow,” “Pictures of You,” and eight other novels. “Pictures of You” was a Best Book of the Year from the San Francisco Chronicle, Kirkus Reviews, The Providence Journal and Bookmarks Magazine, as well as being a Costco Pennie’s Pick. She reviews for People Magazine and the San Francisco Chronicle and she teaches writing online for Stanford University.
Landis wrote the novel-in-stories “Normal People Don’t Live Like This,” a Newsday Top Ten Book of 2009 and a More magazine choice for Top 100 Books Every Woman Should Read. A journalist and author of six interior-design books, Landis won a 2010 fellowship from the National Endowment from the Arts.
Henderson is a two-time Pushcart Prize nominee and the recipient of an Academy of American Poets award. Her debut novel, “Up From the Blue,” was selected as a Great Group Reads pick by the Women’s National Book Association and a favorite reads feature on the Rosie O’Donnell show.
“We are delighted to host an intimate evening with four writers, who happen to be women,”
said Little City Books co-owner Kate Jacobs. “There will be readings and conversation about writing, books, life, and the place they coincide.”
