LIZA GYLLENHAAL AUTHOR OF A PLACE FOR US 

The author of SO NEAR and LOCAL KNOWLEDGE, Liza Gyllenhaal will present her third novel A PLACE FOR US —the captivating story of a prominent family immersed in a national scandal resulting from the assault of a neighborhood teenager during a night of drinking with the family’s son and his prep school friends.

An ensuing law suit alleging that the parents are responsible for what went on in their house incites their small Massachusetts town to turn against them, revealing simmering and long standing jealousies and resentments. A timely novel reflecting many facets of today’s society this is “a thought-provoking story of young people attempting to navigate the often treacherous road to adulthood and of adults attempting to parent on an equally dangerous path.” — Booklist
