Colleen Oakley Book Launch

January 7 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Colleen Oakley will launch her latest work, “You Were There Too,” in the Atlanta area with appearances at Maune Gallery, FoxTale Book Shoppe, Margaret Mitchell House, as well as a visit to Peachtree City Library on Tuesday, January 7, at 11 a.m.

Due to the expected high attendance, the event will be held next door to the Library in Council Chambers at City Hall.

You Were There Too is the story of artist Mia Graydon and her surgeon husband, Harrison, who recently moved from Philadelphia to the small, quaint town of Hope Springs, Pennsylvania. Children were part of the plan for the relocated couple until Mia suffers a third, devastating miscarriage. Then Mia meets the man of her dreams – literally.

Oakley is the author of two previous novels, Close Enough to Touch and Before I Go, which were named best books by People, Us Weekly, Library Journal and Real Simple, and both were long-listed for the Pat Conroy Southern Book Prize. Oakley is also the former senior editor of Marie Claire and editor in chief of Women’s Health & Fitness. Her articles, essays and interviews have been featured in the New York Times, Ladies’ Home Journal, Marie Claire, Women’s Health, Redbook, Parade and Martha Stewart Weddings.
