In Conversation with Addison Armstrong
Join us on Saturday, October 23rd, at 10 am for an In Conversation event with debut author Addison Armstrong. She’ll be talking about her book, The Light of Luna Park, an evocative depiction of two pioneering women’s intertwined lives.
New York City, 1926. Nurse Althea Anderson’s heart is near breaking when she witnesses another premature baby die at Bellevue Hospital. So when she reads an article detailing the amazing survival rates of babies treated in incubators in an exhibit at Luna Park, Coney Island, it feels like the miracle she has been searching for. But the doctors at Bellevue dismiss Althea and this unconventional medicine, forcing her to make a choice between a baby’s life and the doctors’ wishes — a decision that will change everything.
Twenty-five years later, Stella Wright is falling apart. Her mother has just passed, she quit a job she loves, and her marriage is struggling. Then she discovers a letter that brings into question everything she knew about her mother, and everything she knows about herself.
If you loved Before We Were Yours and The Orphan Train, this novel needs to go to the top of your to-read list.
Addison will be around to answer questions and sign copies as well. This is a free, in-person event.
