Author Emily Griffin
Speaks at the MJCCA Thursday

2016 June 26

New York Times Bestselling Author Emily Giffin, dubbed a “modern day Jane Austen” by Vanity Fair, will speak about her new book to be released Tuesday, “First Comes Love.”

About the Book
Sister stories have always been a favorite of Giffin. In “First Comes Love” Giffin introduces readers to a pair of 30-something sisters who find themselves at a crossroads, their fractious relationship colored by a family tragedy 15 years ago. As the anniversary of their tragedy looms, painful secrets from the past begin to surface, and Josie and Meredith must not only confront the long-dormant issues that divide them, but also come to terms with their own life choices. Emotionally honest and brimming with Giffin’s singular insight and humor, “First Comes Love” is a richly crafted story about family, forgiveness, and finding the courage to follow your own heart—wherever that may lead.

Giffin has penned seven New York Times bestsellers: “Something Borrowed” (2004), “Something Blue” (2005), “Baby Proof” (2006), “Love the One You’re With” (2008), “Heart of the Matter” (2010), “Where We Belong” (2012) and “The One & Only” (2014). Her seven novels, all filled with endearingly flawed characters and emotional complexity, have resonated deeply with both critics and readers around the world, achieving bestseller status in a number of countries. Giffin resides with her husband and three young children in Atlanta.
