This is Heather Webb's second visit to Wilton Library; she was part of an author panel discussion of Fall of Poppies: Stories of Love and the Great War.  In Last Christmas in Paris, she brings to life the experiences of Evie and Thomas, friends and maybe more, whose realities are very different about the war. Through their letters, Evie and Thomas share their greatest hopes and fears and grow ever fonder from afar.   Webb’s other historical novels include Becoming Josephine and Rodin's Lover.  She has written for The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Cosmopolitan, Elle, and France Magazine.  Q&A will follow the talk. See library’s registration link for more details.  No charge. Book signing and purchase will be available courtesy of Elm Street Books, New Canaan. Media Sponsor: GOOD Morning Wilton.    Registration highly recommended. Register online or call 203-762-6334.
