An Event With Ann Hood & Her Newest Book The Obituary Writer
Author Ann Hood is one of the most charming speakers! Not only can she tell a great story, but she is engaging and funny while doing it. At another fabulous event organized by Robin Kall, donations for the Rhode Island Community Food Bank were collected, and Ann Hood read from her latest book The Obituary Writer . It was an event where we could feed our minds and help to feed the hungry at the same time.
On the day John F. Kennedy is inaugurated, Claire, an uncompromising young wife and mother obsessed with the glamour of Jackie O, struggles over the decision of whether to stay in a loveless marriage or follow the man she loves and whose baby she may be carrying. Decades earlier, in 1919, Vivien Lowe, an obituary writer, is searching for her lover who disappeared in the Great San Francisco Earthquake of 1906. By telling the stories of the dead, Vivien not only helps others cope with their grief but also begins to understand the devastation of her own terrible loss. The surprising connection between Claire and Vivien will change the life of one of them in unexpected and extraordinary ways. Part literary mystery and part love story, The Obituary Writer examines expectations of marriage and love, the roles of wives and mothers, and the emotions of grief, regret, and hope.- The Obituary Writer By Ann Hood
