Author Patti Callahan Henry at Blue Bicycle Books

Instant Grit
The buzz is building for New York Times bestselling author and southern writer Patti Callahan Henry’s The Stories We Tell, out June 24. A longtime resident of Mountain Brook, Alabama, Patti's book tour will take place in the region she loves most: the south. Patti will be at Blue Bicycle Books in Charleston on July 2nd at 7:00 PM with author Katie Crouch for a discussion and reading.

Recently selected as Southern Living's First Official Beach Read of the Summer, the glowing reviews have already begun!  

"Full of twists and turns, this book will be one that you just can’t put down." 
-Southern Living

"...Henry has mastered the art of the slow reveal, leading the reader down unexpected paths. Readers who enjoy southern women's fiction à la Joshilyn Jackson (Someone Else's Love Story, 2013) will appreciate this emotionally satisfying novel."

Sara Gruen gushed "I loved her portrayal of a strong woman who isn’t afraid to be successful, even when others find it threatening, and who is bold enough to seek the truth, even when living inside the lies is safer and more comfortable."

Imagine the compelling warmth of NBC’s Parenthood merging with one of Nicholas Sparks’ bittersweet love stories, and you’ll have an idea of what to expect from The Stories We Tell.
