in partnership with Warwick's
discussing, in conversation with Laura Dave,
SOMEONE ELSE'S SHOES
Saturday, 11 February 2023 at 9:30 AM (PST)
On Saturday, February 11th at 9:30am PST Rakestraw Books, in partnership with our friends at Warwick’s in La Jolla, will host Jojo Moyes as she discusses her new book, Someone Else’s Shoes, with novelist Laura Dave (The Last Thing He Told Me). Jojo Moyes is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Giver of Stars, Still Me, Paris for One and Other Stories, After You, One Plus One, The Girl You Left Behind, Me Before You, The Last Letter from Your Lover, The Horse Dancer, Night Music, Silver Bay, The Ship of Brides, and The Peacock Emporium. Also a screenwriter, Jojo lives in London, England.
Who are you when you are forced to walk in someone else's shoes?
Nisha Cantor lives the globetrotting life of the seriously wealthy, until her husband announces a divorce and cuts her off. Nisha is determined to hang onto her glamorous life. But in the meantime, she must scramble to cope - she doesn't even have the shoes she was, until a moment ago, standing in.
That's because Sam Kemp - in the bleakest point of her life - has accidentally taken Nisha's gym bag. But Sam hardly has time to worry about a lost gym bag - she's struggling to keep herself and her family afloat. When she tries on Nisha's six-inch high Christian Louboutin red crocodile shoes, the resulting jolt of confidence that makes her realize something must change - and that thing is herself.
Jojo Moyes was last here at Rakestraw Books in January 2013 -- when Me Before You was just out in hardcover -- and we are so thrilled to host her with this special virtual visit.
