Ann Kidd Taylor - 'The Shark Club' with Sue Monk Kidd

The writing gene is strong in this family.  Mom Sue Monk Kidd wrote the beloved The Secret Life of Bees and The Invention of Wings, and together they wrote the memoir Traveling With Pomegranates.  Now Ann Kidd Taylor shares her novel, The Shark Club, with us on Wednesday, June 28, at 7 pm.  When a young-love encounter and a shark attack hit the same day for 12-year-old Maeve, is it any wonder as an adult she's a marine biologist with relationship issues?  When she returns to her childhood home to fight to save sharks from an illegal finning operation, she also has to confront family and romantic fronts.

Ann will be in a conversation with her mom, Sue Monk Kidd, moderated by author Cate Lineberry (The Secret Rescue; Be Free or Die).  This talk, which will touch on mother-daughter writing teams, is one we want to overhear.
