Join us for a reading and booksigning with Wade Rouse at the Bloomfield Township Library (1099 Lone Pine Rd.) on Friday, April 26th at 7:00 PM. He’ll be reading from his new Viola Shipman book, The Summer Cottage.
From the bestselling author of The Charm Bracelet and The Recipe Box comes the perfect summer escape about the restorative power of family tradition, small-town community and the feel of sand between your toes.
“Every now and then a new voice in fiction arrives to completely charm, entertain and remind us what matters. Viola Shipman is that voice and The Summer Cottage is that absolutely irresistible and necessary novel.”New York Times Bestselling Author Dorothea Benton Frank
