Elm Grove Reads 12: An Evening with Emma Straub, author of This Time Tomorrow

Thursday, May 26, 2022

The Friends of the Elm Grove Library, in conjunction with Boswell Book Company, invite you a special evening with New York Times bestselling author Emma Straub, for a presentation of her new novel, This Time Tomorrow, a book that combines her trademark charm and wit with a moving father-daughter story and a playful twist on the idea of time travel. In conversation with Noah Weckwerth of the Elm Grove Library.

NOTE: This is a ticketed event. Tickets are $28 + tax and fees, and can be purchased here. Ticket includes a signed copy of the book. Books will be distributed at the event.

What if you could take a vacation to your past? On the eve of her fortieth birthday, Alice is content, but something is missing. And her father, the single parent who raised her, is ailing and out of reach. How did they get here so fast? Did she take too much for granted along the way? When Alice wakes up the next morning somehow back in 1996, it isn’t her sixteen-year-old body that is the biggest shock, or the possibility of romance with her adolescent crush. It’s her dad: the vital, charming, forty-nine-year-old version of her father with whom she is reunited. Now armed with a new perspective on her own life and his, is there anything that she should do differently this time around? With her celebrated humor, insight, and heart, Emma Straub cleverly turns all the traditional time travel tropes on their head and delivers a different kind of love story - about the lifelong, reverberating relationship between a parent and child.

Emma Straub is author of All Adults Here, The Vacationers, Modern Lovers, and the short story collection Other People We Married. She and her husband own Books Are Magic, an independent bookstore in Brooklyn.
