Author Wendy Francis will be at the bookshop on Wednesday afternoon, May 13th from 3:00 - 4:00 PM to talk about her latest novel, Best Behavior. Wendy will sign copies after her talk.
With May comes graduation season, and everyone who has been through it knows that with graduation season comes drama. But add in an emotionally fragile empty-nester, her ex-husband’s much younger new wife, a bullfrog attack and a missing diploma (along with a healthy dose of drinks from the open bar) and you have yourself a human Molotov cocktail just waiting for a shake. Such is the essence of Wendy Francis’s witty, warm, and quirky family drama, BEST BEHAVIOR . Heartfelt and relatable, Francis cleverly portrays the nuances of a less-than-perfect but more-than-loving blended family in all its messy glory.
Wendy Francis is a former book editor and the author of three novels: The Summer Sail, The Summer of Good Intentions, and Three Good Things. Her essays have appeared in Good Housekeeping, The Washington Post, Yahoo Parenting, The Huffington Post, and WBUR's Cognoscenti.
