Succeed2gether’s Montclair Literary Festival: Ann Napolitano-‘Within Arm’s Reach’

5:00pm - 6:30pm
First Congregational Church

Come on Saturday, May 4th at 5:20PM as Succeed2gether’s Montclair Literary Festival welcomes New York Times best-selling author of Hello Beautiful, Ann Napolitano.  She will be in discussion about her first book Within Arm’s Reach, originally published in 2004, and this special paperback edition now reissued 20 years later!

Within Arm’s Reach is the tender and perceptive debut novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Hello Beautiful, about three generations of a large Catholic family jarred into crisis by an unexpected pregnancy.

This spellbinding novel is a poignant reminder of how connected we are to those we love, even when we cannot find the words to say it. The unforgettable story of three generations of an Irish American family, Within Arm’s Reach is another rich and deeply satisfying novel from the author who captured the many dimensions of grief in Dear Edward and the unbreakable bonds of sisterhood in Hello Beautiful.

This event will be held in The Sanctuary of the First Congregational Church of Montclair, 40 South Fullerton Ave, Montclair, 07042. If you require any special accommodations to attend, please email montclairliteraryfestival@gmail.com before the event.
Ann Napolitano is the bestselling author of Hello Beautiful which was selected as Oprah’s 100th Book Club pick; Dear Edward, an instant New York Times bestseller, a Read with Jenna selection, and an Apple TV+ series; A Good Hard Look, and Within Arm’s Reach. For seven years, Napolitano was the associate editor of the literary magazine One Story, and she received an MFA from New York University. She has taught fiction writing at Brooklyn College’s MFA program, New York University’s School of Continuing and Professional Studies, and Gotham Writers Workshop.
