Join us in welcoming back Long Island’s own Amy Giles, as she speaks and signs copies of her new novel, That Night.
An evocative story by acclaimed author Amy Giles about tragedy, love, and learning to heal.
The year since a mass shooting shook their Queens neighborhood has played out differently for Jess and Lucas, both of whom were affected by that night in eerily similar and deeply personal ways.
As Jess struggles to take care of her depressed mother and Lucas takes up boxing under the ever-watchful eye of his overprotective parents, their paths converge. They slowly become friends and then something more, learning to heal and move forward together.
But what does it mean to love after an unspeakable tragedy?
“A heartbreakingly real look at how grief unfolds…Both timely and timeless, That Night is a story that will stay with you long after you close the cover.”– Joanne O’Sullivan, acclaimed author of Between Two Skies
“Thoughtful and thought-provoking.”– Kirkus Reviews
“A poignant exploration of the way grief redefines us in the wake of tragedy. THAT NIGHT reminds readers that small acts of kindness, and greater leaps of trust, have the power to strengthen the human heart.” –Shannon M. Parker, acclaimed author of The Girl Who Fell and The Rattled Bones
