Lea Geller in conversation with Amy Poeppel

Join us as we celebrate the launch of Lea Geller's The Truth and Other Hidden Things, and the release of Amy Poeppel's Musical Chairs in paperback. Get ready for a fun and stimulating conversation between two of the wittiest and genuinely funny writers alive.

Lea Geller’s The Truth and Other Hidden Things is a fresh and fiercely funny portrait of a middle-aged wife and mother grappling with a series of unexpected curveballs life has thrown her family’s way. It’s a bold, uproarious, and thought-provoking read about one woman’s fear of death by suburbia, her secret life, the stories she tells, and the thrill and notoriety of being noticed.

Lea Geller is the author of Trophy Life. A recipient of the 2019 Kathryn Gurfein Writing Fellowship at Sarah Lawrence College, she began her writing career by blogging about her adventures in the trenches of parenting.  She is a graduate of Columbia University and Stanford Law School. 

With Musical Chairs, Amy Poeppel, the "quick-witted and razor-sharp" (Taylor Jenkins Reid, NYTimes bestselling author of Daisy Jones and the Six) chronicler of life's small events, returns with a hilarious and heartfelt novel about a perfectly imperfect summer of love, secrets, and second chances.

Amy Poeppel is the author of the novels Musical ChairsSmall Admissions, and Limelight. Her writing has appeared in The New York Times, The Rumpus, Literary Hub, Working Mother, and The Belladonna. She and her husband have three sons and split their time between New York City, Germany, and the wilds of Connecticut.
