Maryville Talks Books: Amy Bloom

February 15, 2018 @ 7:00 pm

Maryville Talks Books with Amy Bloom

Join Left Bank Books and Maryville Talks Books for a Valentine’s Event with Amy Bloom, author of the new historical novel White Houses!

An untraditional life and love story, White Houses is inspired by the life of Lorena Hickok, and her love affair and enduring friendship with Eleanor Roosevelt, the “First Lady of the World.” Hickok was the AP reporter who became “First Friend” and the love of Eleanor’s life. White Houses takes us behind the scenes in the Roosevelt White House, where Lorena lived, and follows Hickok’s life—from childhood through the ups and downs of being “First Friend,” the death of FDR and, finally, the death of Eleanor.

  • $35 ticket admits TWO people and includes ONE hardcover copy of White Houses and a $5 rebate towards the purchase of a second copy of White Houses at the event
