NSL: Never Stop Learning Summer Book Club Series presents CHRIS PAVONE, author of The Expats
Join Chris Pavone for an intimate discussion about his first novel, The Expats. For full engagement, we recommend reading the book before!
Wine and refreshments will be included.
Kate Moore is a typical expat mom, newly transplanted from Washington DC to the quiet cobblestoned streets of Luxembourg. Her days are filled with coffee mornings and play-dates, her weekends with trips to Paris and Amsterdam. Kate is also guarding a tremendous, life-defining secret, one that’s becoming unbearable, indefensible. It’s also clear that another expat American couple are not really who they’re claiming to be; plus Kate’s husband is acting suspiciously. While she travels around Europe, looking for answers, she’s increasingly worried that her past is finally catching up with her. As Kate digs, and uncovers the secrets of the people who surround her, she finds herself buried in layers of deceit so thick they threaten her family, her marriage, and her life.
This series has been made possible, in part, thanks to the generosity of Douglas Elliman Real Estate.
Never Stop Learning wants to skip the small talk and bring back meaningful conversation.
With the explosion of technology, we continue to spend more time online. Whether as a news source, for social interaction, or as a habit, most people are attached to their devices. This trend has led to more time communicating online and less time interacting with real live people…let alone friends and colleagues! It should be easy to convene with friends and colleagues to talk about interesting topics that resonate. Never Stop Learning lays the groundwork for you to learn in a fun and convenient way.
