Some readers may remember Byrd’s Books’ befitting dinner at La Zingara with author Camille Aubray, introducing her premier book, Cooking For Picasso. Now Bethel’s Byrd’s Books welcomes back bestselling author Camille Aubray to discuss - via Zoom - her latest book, The Godmothers. , the Edward Albee Foundation fellowship awardee will join the book shop’s diehard followers of historical fiction - and others who are curious, of course - to discuss her new, suspenseful novel, set in WWII Greenwich Village, about four women who marry into an elegant, prosperous Italian family, and then must take charge of the family’s business when their husbands are forced to leave them during the war.
Refusing to merely imitate the world of men, the four Godmothers learn to put aside their differences and grudges so that they can work together to protect their loved ones, and to find their own unique paths to success, love, forgiveness, and the futures they’ve always dreamed of.
