Paperback launch: Anne Korkeakivi presents Shining Sea
In conversation with Emily Holleman
Cocktail reception to follow
Greenlight is thrilled to host Anne Korkeakivi, novelist and Greenlight neighbor, to present her latest novel, newly released in paperback. Opening in 1962 with the sudden death of Michael Gannon, a former WWII POW in the Pacific, Shining Sea plunges the reader into the turbulent lives of his young widow and children. Spanning from the 60s to the present day, Shining Sea transports us with cinematic scope from the beaches of southern California to the Woodstock rock festival, London’s gritty nightlife in the eighties to the remote Hebridean islands off Scotland’s west coast, the dry heat of Arizona desert to the fertile farmland of Massachusetts, as the Gannon family charts paths they never anticipated. Korkeakivi presents her novel in conversation with author Emily Holleman, followed by a signing and reception of summery cocktails to celebrate the paperback launch.
