New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber will visit the Free Library of Philadelphia's Central Library, 1901 Vine Street, Philadelphia, on Tuesday, April 15 at 7:30 p.m. The event is part of the library's Philadelphia Book Festival, held April 13-19.

Macomber, who is the author of more than 150 books and winner of the prestigious Nora Roberts Lifetime Achievement Award from Romance Writers of America, will be discussing her new novel, Blossom Street Brides: A Blossom Street Novel. A signing will follow the talk, to be held in the library's Montgomery Auditorium.

The newest installment in her popular Blossom Street series is set around A Good Yarn, a knitting store in Seattle, and the lives of Lauren, Bethanne and Lydia, three women in the close-knit community.

Lauren, who has waited years for her boyfriend to propose, makes a bold choice that will lead her to happiness she didn't expect; Bethanne is struggling with a long-distance marriage and an ex who will do anything to win her back; and Lydia is worried about the future of her knitting shop ... until baskets of yarn start popping up all over town, with instructions to knit a scarf for charity and bring it into Lydia’s store. As three women’s lives intersect in unexpected ways, Lydia, Lauren, and Bethanne realize that love heals every heart, and the best surprises still lay ahead.

No tickets required. For more information, call 215-567-4341.
