Author Matthew Quick Outer Banks Book Signing Announced
The Outer Banks author of The Silver Linings Playbook, which was recently made into an Academy Award winning movie starring Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper, will be signing copies of his newest book this week in Manteo.
Read on for the official press release, and then tell us in the comments if you will be attending this event!
Matthew Quick (aka Q) is the New York Times bestselling author of several novels, including THE SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK, which was made into an Oscar-winning film. His work has been translated into thirty languages and has received a PEN/Hemingway Award Honorable Mention.
Q lives with his wife, novelist/pianist Alicia Bessette, on North Carolina’s Outer Banks.
Downtown Books and Dare County Arts Council are celebrating the release of Matthew Quick’s latest novel Love May Fail.
In the new book, Portia Kane is having a meltdown. After escaping her ritzy Florida life and her cheating pornographer husband, she finds herself back in South Jersey, a place that remains largely unchanged from the years of her unhappy youth. Lost and alone, looking to find the goodness in the world she believes still exists, Portia sets off to save herself by saving someone else—a beloved high school English teacher who has retired after a traumatic incident.
Will a sassy nun, an ex-heroin addict, a metal-head little boy, and her hoarder mother help or hurt her chances on this madcap quest to restore a good man’s reputation and find renewed hope in the human race? Love May Fail is a story of the great highs and lows of existence: the heartache and daring choices it takes to become the person you know (deep down) you are meant to be.
An Evening With Matthew Quick is a casual opportunity to hear ‘Q’ talk about his journey as a writer, his sources of inspiration, and find out what it’s like to attend the Oscars. He will be answering questions from the audience and signing books after the event. Seating is first come, first seated.
