Join us in the library or online for a launch party with Marisa de los Santos, author of Watch Us Shine: A Novel. Joining Marisa in conversation is Ethan Joella, author of A Quiet Life: A Novel and A Little Hope.

De los Santos returns to the world of her beloved, bestselling novels Love Walked In and Belong to Me in an enthralling tale of sisterhood, sacrifice, and the enduring power of love. Alternating between two timelines — daughter Cornelia’s story in the present, and that of her mother, Eleanor Campbell, in the 1960s — this story explores the complicated bonds between sisters, the impossible demands of motherhood, and the power of human love to save us again and again.

Marisa de los Santos is a New York Times bestselling author and award-winning poet with a PhD in literature and creative writing. She lives in Wilmington, Delaware, with her family.

Ethan Joella teaches English and psychology at the University of Delaware and specializes in community writing workshops. He is the author of A Quiet Life and A Little Hope, which was a Read with Jenna Bonus Selection and A Quiet Life. He lives in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, with his wife and two daughters.
