City of Flickering Light
Thursday, August 8, 2019 – 5:00pm
Juliette Fay—“one of the best authors of women’s fiction”—transports us back to the Golden Age of Hollywood and the raucous Roaring Twenties, as three friends struggle to earn their places among the stars of the silent screen. With her “trademark wit and grace,” Fay crafts another radiant and fascinating historical novel as thrilling as the bygone era of Hollywood itself, perfect for fans of La La Land and Rules of Civility.
It’s July 1921, “flickers” are all the rage, and Irene Van Beck has just declared her own independence by jumping off a moving train to escape her fate in a traveling burlesque show. When her friends, fellow dancer Millie Martin and comedian Henry Weiss, leap after her, the trio finds their way to the bright lights of Hollywood with hopes of making it big in the burgeoning silent film industry.
