The Friends We Keep: A Fireside Happy Hour Adventure with Jane Green

April 9, 2021 @ 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM


About the Event

During the course of WWII, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt instituted a series of “fireside chats” on the radio, as a way to regularly communicate self-assurance and calm during times of despair and uncertainty in our country. While once a thing of the past, thanks to the brilliant collaboration of billionaire entrepreneur and Shark Tank TV star, Mark Cuban, and Falon Fatemi, former CEO and Founder of Node.ai, Fireside Chats are back, bigger and better than ever, and in a technological format that allows YOU to actively participate!

We are excited to invite you to the next of our new Adventures by the Book series on Fireside Chat with New York Times bestselling author Jane Green as we enjoy a fun Friday evening happy hour to discuss her most recent novel, The Friends We Keep. Grab a glass of wine, get comfy in your favorite chair, and curl up and join us for our exclusive Fireside happy hour where you can chat live with Jane to discuss her book, ask questions, and converse with her “on stage.”

Admission to this event is unique, as Fireside Chat is open by invite only. Simply be one of the first 100 readers to purchase a book below and we will send you a private VIP link to attend the virtual event (iPhone or iPad are required). If you miss out being one of the first 100, no worries, as we will share the event as a podcast afterwards.

Your Adventure includes a paperback copy of The Friends We Keep, tax, shipping within the U.S. and Canada, a live Fireside Chat discussion with Jane, Q&A, and the opportunity to be one of only 100 people invited to celebrate Jane’s first event on Fireside Chat.

About the Author and Book

Jane Green is the author of 20 novels, including 17 New York Times bestsellers. She has over ten million books in print, is published in over 25 languages, and has several books in development for film and tv. She currently lives in London.

Her most recent book, The Friends We Keep, is about how despite disappointments we’ve had or mistakes we’ve made, it’s never too late to find a place to call home. Evvie, Maggie, and Topher have known one another since college. Their friendship was something they swore would last forever. Now, years have passed, the friends have drifted apart, and they never found the lives they wanted—the lives they dreamed of when they were young and everything seemed possible.

Evvie starved herself to become a supermodel but derailed her career by sleeping with a married man. Maggie married Ben, the boy she fell in love with in college, never imagining the heartbreak his drinking would cause. Topher became a successful actor, but the shame of a childhood secret shut him off from real intimacy. By their thirtieth reunion, these old friends have lost touch with one another and with the people they dreamed of becoming. Together again, they have a second chance at happiness…until a dark secret is revealed that changes everything.
