Pre-Order Special & Launch Party for Ethan Joella | A Quiet Life


Launch Party for Ethan Joella's new novel, A Quiet Life.  
Preorders receive this sweet cardinal ornament!

Join us at the Lewes Public Library or online for a conversation with Ethan Joella, author of A Quiet Life: A Novel, an enormously powerful and life-affirming novel about three individuals whose lives intersect in unforeseen ways. Joining Ethan in conversation is Susan Kehoe, owner of Browseabout Books.

Set in a close-knit Pennsylvania suburb in the grip of winter, A Quiet Life follows three people grappling with loss and finding a tender wisdom in their grief. In this beautifully crafted and profoundly moving novel, three parallel narratives converge in poignant and unexpected ways, as each character bravely presses onward, trying to recover something they have lost. Emotionally riveting and infused with hope, A Quiet Life celebrates humanity in the midst of uncertainty.

Ethan Joella teaches English and psychology at the University of Delaware and specializes in community writing workshops. His work has appeared in River TeethThe Cimarron ReviewThe MacGuffinDelaware Beach Life, and Third Wednesday. He is also the author of A Little Hope, which was a 'Read with Jenna' Bonus Selection. He lives in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, with his wife and two daughters.
