LAURA MORIARTY

SATURDAY, JUNE 15; 1 PM

SATURDAY, JUNE 15, 1 PM
LAURA MORIARTY will introduce the softcover edition of the captivating New York Times Bestseller, The Chaperone. It is inspired by the real-life relationship between the 15-year-old future movie star Louise Brooks—cantankerous, irreverent, blossoming with sensuality and sporting her black bob with bangs—and the older, conservative, Midwestern woman who chaperoned Louise to New York City for a summer in the bustling 1920s. It’s the story of an unlikely friendship between two women who couldn’t be more different, and how the summer spent together in New York City forever changes both their lives.

Washington Post says the book is "Captivating and wise...A historically detailed and nuanced portrayal of the social upheaval that spilled into every corner of American life."

The book is in the vein of such blockbusters as Loving Frank and The Paris Wife.
