Conversation with Suzanne Simonetti | The Sound of Wings

MAY 12 | 5 PM 

Join us for a live online conversation with Suzanne Simonetti, author of The Sound of Wings: A Novel (to be released May 4, 2021). Kirkus Reviews writes of this debut novel, "The three principal characters are thoughtful and conscientious, and the deep dives into their thoughts and memories give sharp illustrations of their motivations and fears up to the touching conclusion." Joining Suzanne in conversation is Loretta Nyhan, author of The Other FamilyDigging InAll the Good PartsEmpire Girls, and Home Front Girls.

Set in picturesque Cape May, New Jersey, The Sound of Wings weaves together the story of three women whose lives are upended, and then intertwine: seventy-year-old potter, Goldie, whose shop is failing and who is haunted by her deceased husband; newcomer Krystal with the flashy new mansion but no friends; and Jocelyn, a distracted writer about to miss a deadline due to a custody battle. Author Simonetti gives readers a gripping, touching, and memorable portrait of women rising above painful pasts to seize present opportunities and of friendships that grow, despite differences, to sustain and inspire.

Suzanne Simonetti grew up in the New York suburbs just outside of the city. After earning a BS in marketing, she spent several years writing press releases, until she left her corporate job to focus on her passion for crafting fiction. She lives on Cape May Harbor with her husband.

Loretta Nyhan is the bestselling author of Digging InAll the Good Parts, and the teen paranormal thrillers The Witch Collector Part I and The Witch Collector Part II. With Suzanne Hayes, she coauthored the historical novels Empire Girls and Home Front Girls. When she’s not writing, Nyhan is knitting, baking, and doing all kinds of things her high school self would have found hilarious.
