Danielle Wong presents Swearing Off Stars

Annie Bloom's welcomes Danielle Wong, who will read from her novel Swearing Off Stars.

Amelia Cole―Lia for short―is one of the first women studying abroad at Oxford University in the 1920s. Finally free from her overbearing Brooklyn parents, she finds a welcome sense of independence in British college life. Lia quickly falls for Scarlett Daniels, an aspiring actress and hardheaded protester. Scarlett introduces her to an exciting gender-equality movement with high stakes. But when their secret love clashes with political uprising, their relationship is one of the casualties. Years later, Lia's only memories of Scarlett are obscured by the glossy billboards she sees advertising the actress's new films. But when a mysterious letter surfaces, she is immediately thrown back into their unsettled romance. Lia's travels span oceans and continents in her search for Scarlett. Spread across time and place, their story is one of desire, adventure, and ultimately, devotion. Lia will stop at nothing to win Scarlett back, but she soon realizes that uncovering lost love might not be attainable after all.
