Bestselling YA Author Sarah Dessen at Fairfield Bookstore Jun. 8

Sarah Dessen will be at the Fairfield University Downtown Bookstore, Thursday, June 8, 2017 at 7 p.m. on the 2nd floor, to read from her new novel, Once and for All, answer questions from fans and sign copies.

How many true loves do you get in one lifetime? Once and for All , Sarah Dessen’s thirteenth novel, is set in the world of wedding planning, where crises are routine and ‘the big day’ comes nearly once a week.

“Romance, humor, kindhearted characters, and a touch of painful reality make this another sure bet for Dessen fans.” – Kirkus review

Is it really better to have loved and lost? Louna, daughter of famed wedding planner Natalie Barrett, has seen every sort of wedding: on the beach, at historic mansions, in fancy hotels and clubs. Perhaps that’s why she’s cynical about happily-ever-after endings, especially since her own first love ended tragically. But charming girl-magnet Ambrose isn’t about to be discouraged now that he’s met the one he really wants. In Once And For All , maybe Louna’s second chance is standing right in front of her?

“Dessen, the newest recipient of the Margaret A. Edwards Award, offers up her thirteenth novel, and it’s everything readers have come to love about her work….no one else does summer love like Dessen.” – Booklist review
