The Wilson Center, Oconomowoc's Books & Company, and Milwaukee's Boswell Book Company present a grand evening with Anna Quindlen, the acclaimed novelist and journalist who is known for her candid, frank, and illuminating writing. Shes now appearing for Nanaville, a bighearted book of wisdom, wit, and insight, celebrating the love and joy of being a grandmother.

Before blogs even existed, Anna Quindlen became a go-to writer on the joys and challenges of family, motherhood, and modern life, in her nationally syndicated column. Now she’s taking the next step and going full nana in the pages of this lively, beautiful, and moving book about being a grandmother. Quindlen offers thoughtful and telling observations about her new role, no longer mother and decision-maker but secondary character and support to the parents of her grandson. She writes, Where I once led, I have to learn to follow. Eventually a close friend provides words to live by: Did they ask you?

Everything you love about Anna Quindlen is here in this special new book—her singular voice has never been sharper or warmer. With the same insights she brought to motherhood in Living Out Loud and to growing older in Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake, this new nana uses her own experiences to illuminate those of many others.

About the Author: Anna Quindlen is a novelist and journalist whose work has appeared on fiction, nonfiction, and self-help bestseller lists. She is the author of nine novels, including Object Lessons, One True Thing, and Alternate Side. Her most recent memoir, Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake, was #1 New York Times bestseller.
