Description

Gunn Memorial Library is pleased to welcome author Fiona Davis, for a talk and signing of her latest national bestselling novel, The Address. Ms. Davis, author of The Dollhouse, returns with The Address, a compelling novel about the thin lines between love and loss, success and ruin, passion and madness, all hidden behind the walls of The Dakota, New York City’s most famous residence. Fiona tells two, eventually intertwining, stories that take place 100 years apart. With rich historical detail, nuanced characters, and gorgeous prose, Davis once again delivers a compulsively readable novel that peels back the layers of not only a famed institution, but the lives –and lies–of the beating hearts within.

Davis has folded together two historical eras in this breezy historical novel that jumps between Gilded Age and Reagan-era New York City...[she] overlays the two histories beautifully...The book, rife with historical description and architectural detail, will appeal to design and history buffs alike.”—Publishers Weekly

Fiona Davis was born in Canada and raised in New Jersey, Utah, and Texas. She’s a graduate of the College of William & Mary and the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.  The first ten years of her career was spent as an actress in New York City.   After ten years she changed careers, working as an editor and writer, and her historical fiction debut, The Dollhouse, was published in 2016.

Books will be available for sale and signing at the event thanks to Hickory Stick Bookstore.
