Author Debra Ginsberg to appear at The Book Works

Meet author Debra Ginsberg in a small group setting before she presents a general reading and book-signing on Thursday, Nov. 18, at 7 p.m. at The Book Works (located at the Flower Hill Promenade) for the launch of her new book “The Neighbors Are Watching.”

A private reception will be held at 5:30 p.m. Discuss literature over a glass of wine and savory and delicious treats with Ginsberg, other book lovers, and The Book Works staff. Cost for the private reception is $35 (bring a guest for an additional $15 — 1 book per twosome).

Ginsberg is the author of the memoirs, “Waiting: The True Confessions of a Waitress,” “Raising Blaze: A Mother and Son’s Long, Strange Journey Into Autism,” “About My Sisters” and the novels “Blind Submission,” “The Grift,” and “The Neighbors Are Watching.”

About The Neighbors Are Watching: A pregnant teenager shows up, literally, on her biological father’s doorstep, and the neighbors can’t stop talking. Joe Montana is a handsome restaurant manager who failed to tell his wife that he fathered a baby with an ex-girlfriend 17 years ago. Diana’s bombshell arrival in their quiet cul-de-sac sets off a chain reaction of secrets and lies that threaten to engulf the neighborhood along with the approaching flames from a Santa Ana-fueled California wildfire. A woman scorned, a former reality TV star, and a suburban housewife with her own checkered past—these are just a few of the warring neighbors who will be forced to band together when Diana disappears in the aftermath of the wildfire evacuation, leaving her newborn baby—and many unanswered questions—behind. For more information at visit Attendance to the private reception is limited. Reserve your place by prepaying (cash or check) at The Book Works.
