For the last few months we have been quietly working on the second annual #READ event held in partnership with the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance. And while many of the details are still in flux, we are beyond delighted to announce that #1 New York Times bestselling author, Liane Moriarty, will be our keynote author this year!

Liane is on a limited US tour this fall for her new novel TRULY MADLY GUILTY and will only be visiting ten cities, with Savannah being her only stop in the South. So if you’ve ever wanted to shake her hand and tell her how late you stayed up reading BIG LITTLE LIES or THE HUSBAND’S SECRET, now is your chance! You likely won’t have another opportunity to meet her this year.

Here are a few things important details:

#READSavannah will be at the Hilton Savannah DeSoto on Sunday, September 18th. Because the event is held in partnership with the annual SIBA trade show, the hotel fills up quickly. We will be posting information about overflow hotels, book club activities, and dining options soon.

There are only 200 tickets available, and we expect them to sell out quickly. So grab your book club and register soon. Today if possible.

Ticket prices are $45 for the panels and keynote only OR $55 for panels, keynote, and lunch with all the featured authors, including Liane.

You can register here.

There’s much more to come but we hope to see you in Savannah! In the meantime, here’s a bit about Liane’s new novel:

The new novel from Liane Moriarty, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Husband’s Secret, Big Little Lies, and What Alice Forgot, about how sometimes we don’t appreciate how extraordinary our ordinary lives are until it’s too late.

Six responsible adults. Three cute kids. One small dog. It’s just a normal weekend. What could possibly go wrong?

In Truly Madly Guilty, Liane Moriarty turns her unique, razor-sharp eye towards three seemingly happy families.

Sam and Clementine have a wonderful, albeit, busy life: they have two little girls, Sam has just started a new dream job, and Clementine, a cellist, is busy preparing for the audition of a lifetime. If there’s anything they can count on, it’s each other.

Clementine and Erika are each other’s oldest friends. A single look between them can convey an entire conversation. But theirs is a complicated relationship, so when Erika mentions a last minute invitation to a barbecue with her neighbors, Tiffany and Vid, Clementine and Sam don’t hesitate. Having Tiffany and Vid’s larger than life personalities there will be a welcome respite.

Two months later, it won’t stop raining, and Clementine and Sam can’t stop asking themselves the question: What if we hadn’t gone?

In Truly Madly Guilty, Liane Moriarty takes on the foundations of our lives: marriage, sex, parenthood, and friendship. She shows how guilt can expose the fault lines in the most seemingly strong relationships, how what we don’t say can be more powerful than what we do, and how sometimes it is the most innocent of moments that can do the greatest harm.

    Hi Glynis! So sorry for the mistake. I’ve corrected it above. The event is on September 18th. My bad. I wrote this last night and apparently my brain was already half asleep. But we hope to see you there! — Ariel
