Meet the Author: Elyssa Friedland

Meet the author Elyssa Friedland! Elyssa Friedland has established herself as a master of writing insightful novels about modern life, relationships, and the secrets we keep to protect ourselves and the ones we love. Her last novel, The Intermission (2018), was praised for its “snappy dialogue” by the Wall Street Journal who called it “intelligent commercial fiction.” It was also called “expertly paced and eerily realistic” (Booklist) and made numerous “Best Book” lists including those by HelloGiggles, PopSugar, Goodreads, MindBodyGreen, and PureWow. Elyssa is a graduate of Yale University and Columbia Law School and lives in New York City with her family.

She will be at the library to discuss her new book, The Floating Feldmans. The book explores just how the open seas can bring submerged feelings to the surface as a disconnected family is forced to confront each other—and the secrets they’re keeping—while on board The Ocean Queen. Copies of the book will be available for purchase.

The event is free and open to all.
