This week’s #BookFace has all that jazz …
#BookFaceFriday continues to celebrate Women’s History Month with Nebraska Book Award-winning author Rebecca Rotert and her literary debut Last Night at the Blue Angel: A Novel” (William Morrow, 2014). This mother-daughter story takes you deep into the 1960s Chicago jazz scene where Naomi and Sophie’s complicated relationship plays out. As a part of our NLC Book Club Kit collection, this book would be the perfect way to spice up any book club! You won’t be able to put down this story by a great female writer.
“Rebecca Rotert traces the difficult contours of love and devotion—a fame-bound singer desperate to change her life, and her daughter, Sophia, who’ll risk anything to stay in her mother’s marred circle of light. Luminous and deeply affecting, this book swept me along and stole my heart.” – (Paula McLain, New York Times bestelling author of The Paris Wife)
This week’s #BookFace model is NLC’s Library Development Staff Assistant, Linda Babcock!
