Local Author Book Launch: The Last Book Party by Karen Dukess
Town of Pelham Public Library, Pelham NY

Come to the Library to hear long-time Pelham resident Karen Dukess talk about her first novel, The Last Book Party. Published by Henry Holt, the novel officially launches on the day of this event and it will include a Q&A with Dukess conducted by her editor at Henry Holt, Libby Burton. The novel, which is on a number of recommended lists including Barnes & Noble’s “Discover Great New Writers” list, takes place in Cape Cod in 1987 and focuses on Eve Rosen, an aspiring writer, who takes an assistant’s job with an acclaimed New Yorker writer on Cape Cod one summer.

According to Stephanie Clifford, author of Everybody Rise, “Laced with the light of its Cape Cod setting, The Last Book Party details a 1980s summer among the literary set that has far-flung consequences for all its characters. As much as the book focuses on love affairs between people, readers will leave inspired by the real love affair here: between Karen Dukess and the world of reading and writing that she illuminates.”

The author will be available to sign books which will be on sale. (Please note that the Library will be open that night for this event only. No regular library services will be available.)
