    Tara Conklin: The Last Romantics @ Bookshop Santa Cruz
    Feb 13 @ 7:00 pm
    THE LAST ROMANTICS is a sweeping yet intimate epic about one American family. It begins in a big yellow house with a funeral, an iron poker, and a brief variation known forever in the Skinner family as the Pause: a free and feral summer in a middle-class Connecticut town. Caught between the predictable life they once led and an uncertain future that stretches before them, the Skinner siblings—fierce Renee, sensitive Caroline, golden boy Joe, and watchful Fiona—emerge from the Pause staunchly loyal and deeply connected. Two decades later, the siblings find themselves once again confronted with a family crisis that tests the strength of these bonds and forces them to question the life choices they’ve made and ask what, exactly, they’ll do for love. A novel that pierces the heart and lingers in the mind, THE LAST ROMANTICS is also a beautiful mediation of the power of stories—how they navigate us through difficult times, help us understand the past, and point the way toward the future.   TARA CONKLIN has worked as a litigator in the New York and London offices of a corporate law firm but now devotes her time to writing fiction. She received a BA in history from Yale University, a JD from New York University School of Law, and a Master of Arts in Law and Diplomacy from the Fletcher School at Tufts University. Born in St. Croix, she grew up in Massachusetts and now lives with her family in Seattle, Washington.   For press inquiries, please contact: Lauren Truskowski, Senior Publicist | HarperCollins Publishers lauren.truskowski@harpercollins.com | (212) 207-7224
