Doors Open – 6pm
Program – 6:30pm – 7:30pm
Book Signing – 7:30pm

No ticket is necessary for this Open House Event featuring New York Times and USA Today bestseller author Tia Williams.

Tia Williams’ debut novel, The Accidental Diva hit shelves in 2004 – and received glowing coverage in Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan, Allure, and The New York Times. She went on to co-write Iman’s makeup memoir, The Beauty of Color and penned two young adult novels, It Chicks and Sixteen Candles.

In 2016, her novel, The Perfect Find, won the African-American Literary Award for Best Fiction – and garnered rave reviews in The Washington Post, Essence, Cosmopolitan, People, Ebony, and InStyle. In 2023, the film adaptation starring Gabrielle Union debuted on Netflix.

Her novel, Seven Days in June, was an instant New York Times and USA Today bestseller, as well as Reese’s Book Club pick for June 2021 – and a TV series adaptation is in development with Will Packer Productions. Her upcoming novel, A Love Song for Ricki Wilde, publishes on February 6, 2024. Tia lives with her daughter and husband in Brooklyn.

Join us for an evening of learning more about the author’s books, and her writing journey.
Following the program will be a book signing.

The Marion Public Library BookMarks Friends group will have a selection of books available for purchase at the event.
