Browseabout Books in Rehoboth Beach has added two events for booklovers during Fourth of July week with the appearances of internationally recognized New York Times bestselling authors Dorothea Benton Frank and Hoda Kotb.
Frank will appear 5 p.m., Tuesday, July 2, to speak about the writer’s life and her newest novel “The Last Original Wife," which soared in popularity to become one of Publishers Weekly’s hottest reads in hardcover fiction and hit every major bestsellers list (including the New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal) immediately following its June 11 release.
“The Last Original Wife” is the story of Leslie Anne Greene Carter, an audacious woman in her 50s thrust into the realization that she is the last original wife among her husband’s successful socially elite caste. On a quest to find the love she deserves, a mid-life divorce and myriad setbacks lead to reinvention in a hilarious tale that blends adventure and a touch of romance in what is destined to become a perennial favorite beach read.
Kotb, co-anchor of the fourth hour of Today, Dateline NBC correspondent and three-time Emmy winner will appear 10 a.m., Friday July 5, to present her newest non-fiction book, “Ten Years Later - Six People Who Faced Adversity and Transformed Their Lives.”
Profiling the lives of six individuals who faced overwhelming challenges - abuse, illness, addiction, grief and unemployment - Kotb reveals their journeys, measured in dreams turned into hope turned into action, through small steps and incredible leaps of faith into better lives that touch the hearts of readers.
Both authors will sign books during the events, being held at Browseabout Books at 133 Rehoboth Ave. Browseabout will hold books upon request. More information is available at www.browseaboutbooks.com or by calling 302-226-2665.
