An Evening with Elizabeth Berg

Event date: 

Tuesday, April 20, 2010 - 7:30pm

Please join us at Unity Temple, 875 Lake Street, on Tuesday, April 20th at 7:30pm to celebrate the publication of Elizabeth Berg's new book, The Last Time I Saw You.

From the beloved bestselling author of Home Safe and The Year of Pleasures, comes a wonderful new novel about women and men reconnecting with one another—and themselves—at their fortieth high school reunion.

To each of the men and women in The Last Time I Saw You, this reunion means something different—a last opportunity to say something long left unsaid, an escape from the bleaker realities of everyday life, a means to save a marriage on the rocks, or an opportunity to bond with a slightly estranged daughter, if only over what her mother should wear.

In this beautiful novel, Elizabeth Berg deftly weaves together stories of roads taken and not taken, choices made and opportunities missed, and the possibilities of second chances.

This event is co-sponsored by the Friends of the Oak Park Public Library and Unity Temple Restoration Foundation. Admission is free.
