Message from the Director: Meet the Author Joanne Serling


Dear Livingston Library Community,

There is nothing more thrilling than discovering a new author! That’s why I’m excited to announce that author Joanne Serling will be visiting us on Monday, March 18 at 7:00pm to discuss her book, Good Neighbors.  Serling, a local author from South Orange, is a graduate of Cornell University, and has studied and taught at The Writer’s Studio of New York City. Good Neighbors is Serling’s first novel.

The novel follows the story of four young families who live in a Massachusetts The Good Neighborsuburb.The four families develop a friendship primarily based off of their children’s close ages.  But when one family adopts a four-year-old girl from Russia, the morality and loyalty the families share is questioned.  Is the family mean to their new daughter? Or is the little girl disruptive in ways that outsiders can’t really see? This novel is all about friendships, neighbors, and family relationships.

Limited copies of Serling’s book will be available for sale after the event.

Hope to see you there!

All the best,
