Author Visit: Ann Napolitano, Hello Beautiful (2023)

Monday, January 22 • 1:00pm-2:15pm • OnlineCourse 12378 • $30

Meet New York Times best selling author Ann Napolitano in conversation with Anna Katsavos as they discuss Hello Beautiful (2023), instant bestseller and Oprah’s 100th selection for the year. This profoundly moving family saga, at times heartbreaking, explores a number of emotionally complicated issues and predicaments, as the author expertly tackles themes of grief, mental illness, love, loss, betrayal, and forgiveness. Written with a nod toward Louisa May Alcott’s classic Little Women, the novel focuses on four sisters, close-knit but distinct, as they test the limits of sisterly devotion and family obligations. Though inseparable, the Padavano girls are very different: Julia is the most ambitious; Sylvie the dreamer; Cecelia the artist; and Emeline the caretaker. When William Waters, Julia’s beau, enters their world, so does unexpected chaos, causing a catastrophic family feud. As the years pass, the family must deal with depression, teen pregnancy, divorce, a suicide attempt and much more, testing the sisters’ devotion to one another. Time will be reserved for Q&A.

Pair the author visit with the book discussion led by Anna Katsavos, also in the winter schedule. Separate registration is required.
