|We are pleased to welcome National Book Award finalist and New York Times best-selling author Amy Bloom for a talk and signing of her new, and first, historical novel, WHITE HOUSES. Guided by the three thousand letters between prominent journalist Lorena Hickok and one of the world’s most admired women, Eleanor Roosevelt, Amy Bloom recreated and re-imagined one of the greatest and most intriguing love stories of the 20th century. From Washington, D.C. to Hyde Park, from a little white house on Long Island to an apartment on Manhattan’s Washington Square, Bloom’s new novel moves through places and times, written in compelling prose and with emotional depth, wit and acuity.
“Bloom elevates this addition to the secret-lives-of-the-Roosevelts genre through elegant prose and by making Lorena Hickok a character engrossing enough to steal center stage from Eleanor Roosevelt.”—starred Kirkus Review
Amy Bloom is the author of the bestselling and acclaimed Away; Come to Me, a National Book Award finalist; A Blind Man Can See How Much I Love You, nominated for the National Book Critics Circle Award; Love Invents Us; and Normal.
