The Mark Twain House & Museum is excited to announce this live and in-person discussion on THE SUMMER PLACE, CT native Jennifer Weiner’s new book and love letter to the Outer Cape and the power of home, the way our lives are enriched by the people we call family, and the endless ways love can surprise us. Moderator yet-to-be-announced, so keep an eye out! 

When her twenty-two-year-old stepdaughter announces her engagement to her pandemic boyfriend, Sarah Danhauser is shocked. But the wheels are in motion. Headstrong Ruby has already set a date (just three months away!) and spoken to her beloved safta, Sarah’s mother Veronica, about having the wedding at the family’s beach house in Cape Cod. Sarah might be worried, but Veronica is thrilled to be bringing the family together one last time before putting the big house on the market.

The Summer Place is an enthralling, witty, big-hearted, and sharply observed testament to family in all its messy glory; a story about what we sacrifice and how we forgive.
