New York litigation lawyer-turned-author of chick lit novels such as Something Borrowed and The One & Only, Emily Giffin will visit Westerville while on book tour for the paperback release of her instant New York Times bestseller First Comes Love.
Dubbed a "modern day Jane Austen" and a "dependably down-to-earth storyteller", Giffin writes fiction that handles serious matters in a heartwarming and slightly lighthearted manner.
Tickets may be purchased for the reception and presentation, or for the presentation only. The first 200 guests through the door at the presentation will receive a free paperback copy of First Comes Love (excluding reception ticket holders). Additionally, copies of First Comes Love, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, Babyproof and The One & Only, will be available for purchase and signing.
