Harvey has scheduled these appearances to emphasize the importance of public libraries to book lovers everywhere. These events are being held in order to raise money for each location; ticket sales for certain appearances will go toward the library where the event is being held, while others will give guests the opportunity to donate.
These appearances will feature Harvey and a selection of guests discussing the author’s inspirations, writing process, and general literary philosophy. Many of these talks will place her in conversation with other southern authors, who will explore the importance of southern culture and geography to Harvey’s particular brand of fiction.
“The Summer of Songbirds” is being celebrated by early readers and critics alike, many of whom place the novel among Harvey’s best and most emotionally complex books. The story has been summarized as the multi-generational journey of several women, bonded by common childhood experiences that they must now fight to preserve, all while juggling the turmoil and challenges that come with adulthood.
One reviewer said of the book: “Equal parts moving and nostalgic, Kristy Woodson Harvey’s latest novel is a story of four friends who unite to save a summer camp and find out much more about friendship, love, and their own lives in the process.”
Another stated, “A delightful, glamorous fairy tale for those of us who know that ‘happily ever after’ only arrives after we’ve learned to stand on our own.”
Harvey’s past work has garnered widespread praise as a modern-yet-familiar take on the Southern fiction genre. Her novels have appeared numerous times on the New York Times Bestseller list, as well as listings in Booklist and People Magazine. Her landmark “Peachtree Bluff” saga is also coming to the screen in the near future in a series produced by NBC.
Many of the author’s upcoming appearances require a ticket or reservation to attend, which must be secured in advance. As the July tour dates approach, more details will become available on specific requirements for each event. Interested parties can find the full event calendar on Harvey’s website.
