We are so honored to present an evening with Angie Kim, where Laura Lippman will join her in celebration of her new novel, HAPPINESS FALLS!

In this thrilling page-turner, a father goes missing and his family’s desperate search leads them to question everything they know about him and one another. This is a deeply moving portrait of a family in crisis from the award-winning author of MIRACLE CREEK.

Jodi Picoult says, “This is a story with so many twists and turns I was riveted through the last page.”

Gabrielle Zevin, author of Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, calls it “A brilliant, satisfying, compassionate mystery that is as much about language and storytelling as it is about a missing father. I loved this book.”
