In conversation with Jenny Fran Davis
Wine reception to follow

Laura Blackett and Eve Gleichman (co-authors previously of The Very Nice Box) present Trust and Safety, a wry yet tenderhearted novel about a couple who attempt to buy their way into a “wild and precious” existence in the Hudson Valley, where they quickly become entangled with a queer couple living the dream analog life. Rosie starts thirsting for a rural life upstate—one full of beauty and authenticity. When her husband Jordan suddenly loses his job, the couple is forced to rent out a property’s dilapidated outbuilding in the Hudson Valley. Enter Dylan and Lark: an incredibly attractive and handy queer couple who offer to rent the outbuilding and help Rosie and Jordan with repairs, who also happen to be living the life Rosie had envisioned for herself. Rosie grows increasingly infatuated with their new tenants, especially with charismatic Dylanto Jordan’s increasing distress. Whip-smart and wickedly funny, Trust and Safety examines questions of authenticity, betrayal, belonging, and entitlement, while poking fun at contemporary fear of the “gay agenda.” Laura and Eve discuss their work with fellow author Jenny Fran Davis, along with a reading and book signing.
