Mary Simses, the author of the bestselling debut The Irresistible Blueberry Bakeshop And Café, returns to Wilton Library with her highly anticipated novel, The Rules Of Love & Grammar. Grace Hammond is a young woman with a bone to pick about spelling mistakes, punctuation, and sentence structure. A wordsmith by trade, Grace can’t let even the most innocent grammar mistakes slip by. In making a life correction, Grace returns to her parents’ house in Connecticut where she is faced with mistakes she has made in her life. Grace must decide what truly matters, and whether it just might be time for her to set aside the rule book, open her heart, and take a chance on the unknown. Each chapter starts off with a grammar rule that is applied cleverly to the plot. Q&A and book signing will follow the talk. See library’s registration links for more details. No charge. Registration highly recommended. Books will be available for purchase and signing courtesy of Elm Street Books, New Canaan.
