We were so lucky to have Sloane Crosley visit the store in June. Our frequent events partners, The Riveter magazine, joined Sloane at the mic. After reading from her novel, The Clasp, Sloane answered questions from The Riveter‘s Kaylen Ralph and Joanna Demkiewicz, as well as from the audience.

About The Clasp: Kezia, Nathaniel, and Victor are reunited at the extravagant wedding of a college friend. A tale told by the groom’s mother begins a madcap adventure that leads Victor, Kezia, and Nathaniel from Miami to New York and L.A., and ultimately across France, to the estate of Guy de Maupassant, author of the classic short story “The Necklace.” Heartfelt, suspenseful, and told with Sloane Crosley’s inimitable spark and wit, The Clasp is a story of friends struggling to fit together now that their lives haven’t gone as planned and learning to separate the real from the fake.
