Announcing an exciting new free Speaker Series Event for 2022 with Miranda Cowley Heller speaking about her novel, The Paper Palace, which debuted at #1 on The New York Times bestseller list, on Thursday, March 3 at 7:30 PM ET.
The Paper Palace takes place on a perfect July morning, and Elle, a fifty-year-old happily married mother of three, awakens at “The Paper Palace” — the family summer place which she has visited every summer of her life. But this morning is different: last night Elle and her oldest friend Jonas crept out the back door into the darkness and had sex with each other for the first time, all while their spouses chatted away inside.
Now, over the next twenty-four hours, Elle will have to decide between the life she has made with her genuinely beloved husband, Peter and the life she always imagined she would have had with her childhood love, Jonas if a tragic event hadn’t forever changed the course of their lives.
This is Miranda Cowley Heller’s debut novel. She was raised in New York in a family of artists, writers, and editors. Her grandfather was the literary critic Malcolm Cowley. After graduating from Harvard, she was the associate fiction and books editor at Cosmopolitan Magazine, before working for almost a decade as Senior Vice President and Head of Drama Series at HBO, developing and overseeing such shows as The Sopranos, Six Feet Under, The Wire, Deadwood, and Big Love, among others.
The event will be moderated by Bruce Holsinger, who is a novelist and literary scholar.
