Matthew Quick is the New York Times bestselling author of The Silver Linings Playbook—which was made into an Oscar-winning film—and eight other novels, including the 2018 One Book, One Wallingford selection The Reason You're Alive. His work has been translated into more than thirty languages. His new novel is We Are the Light, a compelling and emotionally resonant story about a high school counselor named Lucas Goodgame who lives in Majestic, Pennsylvania, a quaint suburb that has been torn apart by a recent tragedy. Everyone in Majestic sees Lucas as a hero except Lucas himself. Insisting that his deceased wife, Darcy, visits him every night in the form of an angel, Lucas spends his time writing letters to his former Jungian analyst, Karl. It is only when Eli, an 18-year-old young man whom the community has ostracized, begins camping out in Lucas’s backyard that an unlikely alliance takes shape and the two embark on a journey to heal their neighbors and themselves.
Quick will be joining us to talk about We Are the Light, answer questions and sign copies of the book, which will be available to purchase at the event.
