    Book Club New Year’s Party with Kim Edwards: Celebrate 2011 and 12 months of good reading ahead with the author of book clubbers’ beloved The Memory Keeper’s Daughter – Kim Edwards. With revelations that prove as captivating as the deceptions at the heart of her bestselling phenomenon The Memory Keeper’s Daughter, Edwards now gives us the story of a woman’s homecoming, a family secret, and the old house that holds the key to the true legacy of a family in The Lake of Dreams. At a crossroads in her life, Lucy Jarrett returns home from Japan, only to find herself haunted by her father’s unresolved death a decade ago.

    Late one night, as she paces the hallways of her family’s rambling lakeside house, she discovers a collection of objects that first appear to be useless curiosities, but soon reveal a deeper and more complex family past. As Lucy explores the traces of her lineage –from an heirloom tapestry and dusty political tracts to a web of allusions depicted in stained-glass windows throughout upstate New York — the family story she has always known is shattered. With surprises at every turn, brimming with vibrant detail, The Lake of Dreams is an arresting saga – one you’ll certainly want to add to your club’s selections this year. And we’ll have book suggestions, guides and even some FREE advance copies of other titles to her you and your club pick the best reading for the coming year. This is your chance to mingle with the books to read and the people who read them. Please call (305) 442-4408 for more information.
