Julia Claiborne Johnson in conversation with Steven Rowley at {pages}.

"Be Frank with Me" and "Lily and the Octopus"

Please join us at {pages} for an epic event featuring two authors whose debut novels are both fabulous and original reads. Julia and Steven will discuss their work with each other and then do a Q&A followed by a booksigning. "Be Frank with Me" is a captivating and unconventional story of an unusual mother and son, and the intrepid young woman who finds herself pulled into their unforgettable world. And "Lily and the Octopus"is a moving, revelatory literary novel, where a young writer finds himself unable to open up to the possibility of love, except through the companionship of his aging dachshund Lily. RSVPs recommended.
