Courtney Maum at Star Line Books

July 24, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Join us for an evening with Courtney Maum at 6:30 on Thursday 7/25. She’ll regale us with a talk on what it was like to fictionalize actual historical characters for her most recent novel COSTALEGRE and the challenges of difficult mother-daughter relationships. We’ll also enjoy a short reading, Q&A, and signing.

Courtney Maum is also the author of the acclaimed novels TOUCH and I AM HAVING SO MUCH FUN HERE WITHOUT YOU, which were both selected by such outlets as O Magazine, Time Magazine, The New York Times, Glamour, Marie Claire and others as one of the best books of summer. (TOUCH was a New York Times editor’s choice and an NPR Best Books of 2017 pick.) Her short fiction, book reviews, and essays on the writing life have been widely published in outlets such as The New York Times, O Magazine, Tin House, Electric Literature, and Buzzfeed, and she has co-written films that have debuted at Sundance and won awards at Cannes. At various points in her life, she has been a trend forecaster, a fashion publicist, and a party promoter for Corona Extra. She currently works as a product namer for M·A·C cosmetics and other companies from her home in Litchfield County, CT, where she founded the learning collaborative, The Cabins which will take place again in the summer of 2020.
