Jessica Francis Kane - Rules for Visiting

Rules for Visiting is a woman's exploration of friendship in the digital age. Deeply alert to the nobility and the ridiculousness of ordinary people, May Attaway savors the pleasures along the way--afternoon ice cream with a long-lost friend, surprise postcards from an unexpected crush, and a moving encounter with ancient beauty. Though she gets a taste of viral online fame, May chooses to bypass her friends' perfectly cultivated online lives to instead meet them in their messy analog ones. Ultimately, May learns that a best friend is someone who knows your story--and she inspires us all to master the art of visiting.

Rules for Visiting was easily one of the most delightful novels of 2019, so we are particularly happy that it is now in paperback! We are thrilled to invite you to a special cocktail hour "Live at Home!" with novelist Jessica Francis Kane on Tuesday, 26 2019 at 5 PM. We can't wait to introduce you . . . .Tickets are $5 (admits one and includes a $5 coupon to rakestrawbooks.com). Purchase yours HERE.

Bonus: And while we are sure that you are perfectly capable of making your own cocktail at home (or pouring your own glass of wine!), some of you may wish a delicious take out option. May we recommend our friends at Harvest Danville - https://www.toasttab.com/danville-harvest/v3 - or Cielito Danville - https://www.toasttab.com/cielito/v3#!/
