National Bestselling Author Patti Callahan Henry is touring this June to promote her new novel, The Art of Keeping Secrets.
    Patti’s novels are all set at the beach, and this year, she’s focusing her tour on beach towns across the country, including: Point Pleasant Beach, NJ, Rehoboth Beach, DE, Atlantic Beach, FL, Vero Beach, FL and Pawley’s Island, SC.
    At every event during this “Beach Bound” tour, she’ll be giving away a “memory jar” full of shells that ties into the plot of The Art of Keeping Secrets.
    Growing up a minister’s daughter, Patti learned early how storytelling can affect lives. As a child she spent her summers on Cape Cod where she began her love affair with the ocean. She then moved south at the tender age of twelve and found solace in books and stories. Patti weaves all of these elements together in her imaginative work, earning a coveted place among such literary favorites as Anne Rivers Siddons, Cassandra King, and Mary Alice Monroe.{mosimage}
