The Fresh City Life My Branch Colorado Authors Series presents Eleanor Brown, author of The Weird Sisters, on Sunday, May 8 at 2 p.m. at Schlessman.
Eleanor Brown's debut novel, The Weird Sisters, is the story of the Andreas family, whose motto might as well be "There's no problem a library card can't solve." When Rosalind, Bianca, and Cordelia (named after Shakespeare heroines by their professor father) return to their childhood home, ostensibly to care for their ailing mother, but really to lick their wounds and bury their secrets, they are horrified to find the others there. See, they love each other. They just don't happen to like each other very much.
