Maria Semple - Today Will Be Different

Thursday, November 3, 2016 at 7 p.m.

A fun yet serious romp, Semple's Where'd You Go, Bernadette? featured a smart, talented woman so beleaguered by life that she fled rather than participate in a family trip. In her equally humorous and insightful third novel, Semple, a former TV producer and writer for shows including Arrested Development, showcases her fine sense of drama, character, and pacing as she  follows a day in the life of Eleanor Flood, a young wife and mother struggling to keep herself and her family under control. Eleanor's best-laid plans go awry when her young son fakes illness to spend the day with her, her husband declares a sudden vacation, and a surprise in the newspaper forces her to confront a past she's kept well buried.
