Join New York Times bestselling author Joyce Maynard for a sparkling conversation and a glass of champagne to celebrate the release of her new book How the Light Gets In – the eagerly anticipated follow up to Count the Ways. 

With her trademark compassion and insight Joyce Maynard paints an indelible portrait of characters both familiar and new making their way over rough, messy, and treacherous terrain to discover what is, for each, a place to call home and family. 

“Joyce Maynard has stitched together a warm, rich patchwork quilt of a novel that reminds us history is made up simply of our stories, and that even in broken, imperfect things one finds beauty and strength.” ~ Jodi Picoult, #1 NY Times Bestselling author 

“Joyce Maynard’s How the Light Gets In grabbed ahold of me in the first chapter and didn’t let go till I’d finished the epilogue. A master storyteller at the top of her game, Maynard populates her story with characters I worried about, rooted for, and related to. I LOVED this book!" ~ Wally Lamb, #1 NY Times Bestselling author


Joyce Maynard is the author of twelve previous novels and five books of nonfiction. Her bestselling memoir At Home in the World has been translated into sixteen languages. Her novels To Die for and Labor Day were both adapted for film.
