Ames Sheldon at Andover Bookstore Thursday 10/17 at 6:30PM
Join us for Ames Sheldon at 6:30PM. Ames will be discussing, and signing her new book Don't Put the Boats Away, which contains a scene that takes place at our very own Phillips Academy.
"Don’t Put the Boats Away” is chock-full of well-researched historical details about political events, medical advancements, and even food trends of the 1940s, ‘50s, and ‘60s, and it also offers important commentary on professional opportunities for women during these decades. The author creates believable characters with complex interior lives. Overall, it’s a touching tale that examines the ways in which grief, regret, and unmet expectations can reverberate through generations.” Kirkus Reviews
