Under the Southern Sky: An Exclusive Fireside Chat Adventure
April 25, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm PDT$20.49
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 USA Today bestselling author Kristy Woodson Harvey as she celebrates the VIP launch of her delicious new summer read, Under the Southern Sky. Join us for our exclusive Fireside Chat where you can chat live with Kristy to discuss her new book, ask questions, and converse with her “on stage.”

In her new novel, Under the Southern Sky, two childhood friends discover that love—and family—can be found in unconventional ways in this timely, moving novel from the USA Today bestselling author of the “beautifully Southern, evocative Peachtree Bluff series” (Kristin Harmel, New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Lost Names).
Recently separated Amelia Buxton, a dedicated journalist, never expected that uncovering the biggest story of her career would become deeply personal. But when she discovers that a cluster of embryos belonging to her childhood friend Parker and his late wife Greer have been deemed “abandoned,” she’s put in the unenviable position of telling Parker—and dredging up old wounds in the process. Parker has been unable to move forward since the loss of his beloved wife three years ago. He has all but forgotten about the frozen embryos, but once Amelia reveals her discovery, he knows that if he ever wants to get a part of Greer back, he’ll need to accept his fate as a single father and find a surrogate.
Each dealing with their own private griefs, Parker and Amelia slowly begin to find solace in one another as they navigate an uncertain future against the backdrop of the pristine waters of their childhood home, Cape Carolina. The journey of self-discovery leads them to an unforgettable and life-changing lesson: Family—the one you’re born into and the one you choose—is always closer than you think.
