The Midtown Scholar Bookstore is honored to welcome award-winning authors Emma Copley Eisenberg and Clare Beams to Harrisburg for a conversation and signing on their new novels, Housemates (Eisenberg), and The Garden (Beams). Eisenberg and Beams will be in conversation with local author Jamie Beth Cohen.

Warm and insightful, Eisenberg’s Housemates is a story of youth and freedom—a glorious celebration of queer life, and how art and love might save us all.

With shades of Shirley Jackson and Rosemary’s Baby, Beams delves into the territory of motherhood, childbirth, the mysteries of the female body, and the ways it has always been controlled and corralled in The Garden.

This event is free and open to the public. To enter the signing line, books must be purchased from the Midtown Scholar Bookstore. Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the event, or you may pre-order a copy of the book for pickup/shipment. Pre-ordered books may not be signed until after the event.
