New York Times best selling author Jane Green is coming out with a new book, and it's set in Fairfield County. Those who read The Sunshine Sisters will recognize some spots featured in the new novel. Green will also be hosting some local events to promote the release of the novel next month.
Ronni Sunshine left London for Hollywood in the sixties to become a charming starlette. But at home, she was a disinterested mother who alienated her three daughters. When Ronni discovers she has a serious illness, she calls her now-adult girls home to fulfill her final wishes. The estranged sisters, who are going through crises of their own, are forced to confront old jealousies and secret fears. In the end, they discover that blood might be thicker than water.
On June 3rd, Green will be hosting a book launch, birthday bash, and benefit with a farm-to-table dinner at Gilbertie's Farm in Easton. In addition to dinner and conversation with the author, attendees will receive a signed copy of The Sunshine Sisters. Proceeds will benefit Pink Aid, based in Westport. Pink Aid’s mission is to help underserved local women survive breast cancer treatment with support and dignity. The organization's grants support programs that provide services including free breast cancer screening and help covering non-medical expenses such as food cards, household bills, wigs, recovery garments and transportation for patients undergoing treatment.
On June 7th, Green will be at Norwalk Public Library for an Author Luncheon. The event is at noon.
