The Glendale Central Library is hosting “Embrace Love in the New Year: A Heartfelt Conversation with Rebecca Serle,” on Wednesday, Jan. 10, at 5 p.m.
Join online as the library kicks off the New Year talking to the novelist about her journey writing epic love stories that span generations. The author will chat about her New York Times bestselling novels, “One Italian Summer,” “In Five Years,” “The Dinner List” and many more.
Additionally, in a special preview, Serle will briefly discuss her forthcoming novel (due out on March 5) “Expiration Dates.” In “Expiration Dates,” Daphne Bell believes the universe has a plan for her. Every time she meets a new man, she receives a slip of paper with his name and a number on it — the exact amount of time they will be together. The papers told her she’d spend three days with Martin in Paris; five weeks with Noah in San Francisco; and three months with Hugo, her ex-boyfriend turned best friend. Daphne has been receiving the numbered papers for more than years, always wondering when there might be one without an expiration. Finally, on the night of a blind date at her favorite Los Angeles restaurant, there’s only a name: Jake.
Told with her signature warmth and insight into matters of the heart, Serle has finally set her sights on romantic love. The result is a gripping, emotional, passionate and heartbreaking novel about what it means to be single, what it means to find love, and ultimately how we define each of them for ourselves.
