Phillyist Reads... Eleanor Brown at Chester County Book & Music Company
Shakespeare fiends, this one's for you!
Eleanor Brown, author of the new novel, The Weird Sisters, will be reading from and signing copies of the book tomorrow night at Chester County Book & Music Company.
It's the story of the Andreas family — a Shakespeare professor, his wife, and their three grown daughters: Rosalind, Bianca, and Cordelia (see what she did there?). The girls return home to care for their sick mother, and to escape a bit their own personal crises. And, of course, when any adult, let alone three, returns to their family for an extended period of time, there's bound to be some pretty epic emotional mayhem for everyone.
The book was just released last week and is already (rightly) earning high praise. It's in the top 100 bestsellers, and is on Barnes and Noble's Best Books of the Month list. Also (and this is strange to say), the book's cover is gorgeous. Go look at it in the bookstore — the paper jacket is a shimmery pearly white, and the raised green lettering with the vines just makes you want to take it home. (That might be just us. Probably. We're weird that way.)
Regardless, you should go see Eleanor Brown tomorrow night and get your Bard on.
