Bethany Beach Books, Bethany’s only independent bookstore, has announced that national bestselling author Elin Hilderbrand will appear for a book signing at 6 p.m., Sunday, July 28. Hilderbrand's beach novels have always been huge bestsellers at Bethany Beach Books.
The author lives with her husband and their three children on Nantucket, Mass., the setting for all of her bestselling novels, including, “Barefoot,” “A Summer Affair,” “The Castaways” and “The Island.” Hilderbrand grew up in Collegeville, Pa., and traveled extensively before settling down in Nantucket. She holds degrees from Johns Hopkins University and the graduate workshop at the University of Iowa. Hilderbrand’s latest novel, “Beautiful Day,” was released in late June and is currently on the New York Times best sellers list; it is her 12th novel.
In “Beautiful Day,” the Carmichaels and the Grahams have gathered on Nantucket for a wedding. Plans are being made according to the wishes of the bride's late mother, who left behind The Notebook: specific instructions for every detail of her youngest daughter's future nuptials. Everything should be falling into place for the beautiful event - but in reality, things are far from perfect.
While the couple-to-be is quite happy, their loved ones find their own lives crumbling. In the days leading up to the wedding, love will be questioned, scandals will arise, and hearts will be broken and healed.
Bethany Beach Books has increased its author signings this year, averaging 12 a summer. 2013 will see well over 35 author signings before the year is out. For more information on this signing and future signings at Bethany Beach Books, call 302-539-2522 or visit www.bethanybeachbooks.com.
