On the day John F. Kennedy is inaugurated, Claire, an
uncompromising young wife and mother obsessed with the glamour of Jackie O,
struggles over the decision of whether to stay in a loveless marriage or follow
the man she loves and whose baby she may be carrying. Decades earlier, in 1919,
Vivien Lowe, an obituary writer, is searching for her lover who disappeared in
the Great San Francisco Earthquake of 1906.

By telling the stories of the dead, Vivien not only
helps others cope with their grief but also begins to understand the
devastation of her own terrible loss. The surprising connection between Claire
and Vivien will change the life of one of them in unexpected and extraordinary
ways. Part literary mystery and part love story, The Obituary Writer
examines expectations of marriage and love, the roles of wives and mothers, and
the emotions of grief, regret, and hope.

The reading and signing requires the purchase of
the book or a $5 event ticket.
