Gunn Memorial Library in Washington, CT is pleased to welcome New York Times best selling author Lisa Toddeo for a talk and signing on her runaway best seller Three Women. This special event will take place on Tuesday, September 24, 2019 @ 6:00pm.
Over the past eight years, journalist Ms. Taddeo has driven across the country six times to embed herself with ordinary women from different regions and backgrounds. The result, Three Women, is the deepest nonfiction portrait of desire ever written and one of the most anticipated books of the year.
Told with astonishing frankness and immediacy, Three Women is a groundbreaking portrait of erotic longing in today’s America, exposing the fragility, complexity, and inequality of female desire with unprecedented depth and emotional power. It is both a feat of journalism and a triumph of storytelling, brimming with nuance and empathy, that introduces us to three unforgettable women—and one remarkable writer—whose experiences remind us that we are not alone.
Books will be available for sale and signing at the event courtesy of Hickory Stick Bookstore.
