In her highly anticipated new novel Vera, New York Times bestselling author Carol Edgarian delivers an astonishing feat of imagination, a grand adventure set in 1906 San Francisco — a city leveled by quake and fire, greed and corruption — featuring an indomitable heroine coming of age in the aftermath of catastrophe and her quest for love and reinvention.
Born in New Britain, Connecticut to first-generation American parents, Carol is a graduate of Phillips Andover and Stanford University. She has lived in her adopted hometown of San Francisco for more than three decades. She and her husband have three daughters.
Her novels include the newly-released Vera, Three Stages of Amazement, and Rise the Euphrates, described by The Washington Post as a book “whose generosity of spirit, intelligence, humanity and ambition are what literature ought to be.” Rise the Euphrates was awarded the ANC Freedom Prize, and a twentieth-anniversary revised edition of the novel was released to mark the centennial of the Armenian Genocide. We are delighted to have her join our Friends @ Home series.
Those who are interested in purchasing Vera before this talk can order directly from Books Inc. via their website.
