Program Type:Author Visit
Join us for a discussion with Maggie Ginsberg, author of the novel Still True. All are invited to visit with Maggie and ask questions after her reading.
One summer evening, Lib Hanson is confronted by her painful past when Matt Marlow, the forty-year-old son she abandoned as an infant, shows up on her porch. Fiercely independent, Lib has never revealed her son’s existence—or her previous marriage—to her husband, Jack. Married nearly three decades but living in separate houses (to the confusion but acceptance of their neighbors), they enjoy an ease and comfort together in small-town Anthem, Wisconsin. But Jack is a stickler for honesty, and Lib’s long-dormant secret threatens to unravel their lives.
Luis Alberto Urrea, Pulitzer Prize finalist writes, “It’s a rare experience to feel gratitude for a book’s pleasures on nearly every page. But Maggie Ginsberg has written that book. I could stay in this story for years.”
Maggie Ginsberg is an editor at Madison Magazine and a freelance writer for city, regional, and national magazines. Still True is her debut novel.
