May 1, 2023

Kristy Woodson Harvey appears alongside #1 NYT Bestselling Author Elin Hilderbrand in Nantucket, MA on July 11th to celebrate the launch of Harvey’s new novel.

Kristy Woodson Harvey has already carved her place in the Southern fiction genre as a trendsetting author of emotional, heartfelt novels that each tell unique tales wherein women take centerstage. Her seminal Peachtree Bluff series has partially defined the modern landscape of the genre, and each of her subsequent works have only continued this trend of high-quality, emotionally complex narratives that ultimately feed the heart and soul.

Now, you can meet Harvey and get a sneak preview of her newest novel, The Summer Of Songbirds. Harvey will be appearing at the Nantucket Atheneum to launch this new novel on July 11th from 6-7 pm. At this event, she will speak with fellow author Elin Hilderbrand, during which time the pair will discuss their influences, their inspirations, and their aspirations going forward. This event is perfect for anyone who wishes to get a glimpse into the modern fiction landscape, and, of course, for fans of Harvey's work. You will also get a change to pre-order a personalized copy of The Summer Of Songbirds following event.

Harvey's Nantucket appearance will mark the launch of her 10th novel, which follows an entirely new cast of characters as they embark on an emotional journey of friendship, tragedy, and intrigue. At this event, you will get an exclusive first look at the book and the stunning narrative it weaves.

The Summer Of Songbirds will follow a colorful cast of childhood friends - now grown - as they reunite to attempt to save the summer camp that formed the foundation of their friendship. H

Early reviews of the novel have lauded it as one of Harvey’s best yet, with many reviewers praising her honest and richly crafted prose. Others have heralded Harvey as the next important voice to come out of the Southern fiction genre, following in the footsteps of genre-defining authors like Mary Kay Andrews and Emily Giffin.

One reviewer stated, “Harvey reminds us that sisterhood can take many forms…With a strong dose of nostalgia and multiple narrations from Daphne, Lanier, and June, the book will appeal to Mary Kay Andrews and Katherine Center fans, who will revel in the support the women demonstrate for one another.”

Harvey is best known for her 4-part Peachtree Bluff series, which is now being adapted to the screen, currently in production with NBC. This series alongside her other standalone works have repeatedly seen her appear on the New York Times Bestseller list, along with several other must-read recommendations from Booklist and other well-known reviewers.

If you are unable to attend this event, you will get a second chance to meet Harvey and hear her speak the following day alongside Hildebrand at Mitchell’s Book Corner starting at 11 am. Seating for both events is first come, first served, and no purchase or ticket is necessary to attend the event.

Don't miss this chance to peer into the mind of one of Southern fiction's premiere voices; whether you are already a fan of Harvey's work or simply curious about what it takes to weave a lovingly crafted narrative, this event is a must-attend affair!
