On Tuesday, July 14 at 7 p.m., Wilton Library welcomes author Lauren Acampora with her debut fiction, The Wonder Garden.

Library Journal Review noted about the book, “The dark underside of picture-perfect suburban life is familiar territory in American fiction, but Acampora brings fresh insight to the theme in this debut collection, offering short stories that connect various residents in an upscale Connecticut town.”

According to Acampopra, the town is an “…invented hybrid of towns in the area:  Darien, Wilton, Ridgefield, Katonah, Bedford. It’s located on the Long Island Sound like Darien, but with the Victorian houses of Katonah, the horse farms of Bedford, and Wilton and Ridgefield’s high density of early Colonial homes.”

The Library Journal Review also added that, “Her characters’ problems are not new (infidelity, failed marriages, kids on drugs), but these suburbanites have enough quirks and stories intriguing enough to keep readers turning the pages.”

Books will be available for purchase and signing courtesy of Elm Street Books of New Canaan. Advance registration is preferred, via the Library website.
