A New York Times bestselling author, and reigning queen of "chick lit," Westport's own Jane Green is best known for writing about the intimate complexities inherently found in all relationships. Although she is especially adept at unveiling nuances between romantic encounters, in her latest novel, Promises to Keep, Green poignantly discusses the sustainability of platonic friendships, especially in the throes of dealing with a fatal illness.
Green will host a book release party and launch a national book tour this week at the Westport Country Playhouse. She is sponsoring a fundraiser to benefit the Whittingham Cancer Care Center at Norwalk Hospital on Tuesday, June 15, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Green will speak about Promises to Keep and sign autographed copies of the book. Light luncheon fare will be provided. Raffle items include season tickets to the Westport Country Playhouse, private yoga sessions, dinner for four and a cooking lesson from Nicole Straight of Time to Eat, and tickets to the Martha Stewart Show in New York City.
