By Anna Faller | June 19, 2021

On the hunt for the perfect warm-weather companion? New York Times bestselling author Emily Henry joins the National Writers Series on Thursday, June 24, and she’s about to take your beach bag by storm. Her newest novel, “People We Meet on Vacation,” follows the protagonist pair of Alex and Poppy. The unlikeliest of friends for more than a decade, these two are fire and ice in more ways than one. But every year, they reconvene for a week of R&R. That is, until one ill-fated excursion ended it all. So, how do you fix a broken friendship? Easy: Take another vacation. Named a Most Anticipated book of 2021 by Oprah Magazine and Newsweek, amongst many others, this is one summer read you won’t want to miss. Guest-hosted by another best-selling author, Brittany Cavallero, this virtual event begins at 7pm. For tickets and more information, see
