P&P Live! Ellen Prentiss Campbell in Conversation with Deborah Kalb
- March 5, 2021
The author of Known by Heart speaks virtually on Sun., Mar. 7th, at 5 p.m. (EST)!
Love is necessary but not easy in these stories of love's joys and challenges, regrets and uncertainties. Complicated people fall in and out of love, care for each other, delight each other, disappoint each other, hurt each other, yearn for each other. In Known By Heart, Ellen Prentiss Campbell tells of all sorts of love: young love, lost love, love found perhaps too late, family love, love between friends. Her writing has been praised for its realism and grace. These untraditional love stories illustrate that love is essential, but not for the faint of heart.
