Book Talk/Signing: The Hidden Summer by Gin Phillips
Thursday, October 24, 6:00 pm
hidden summerMeet award-winning author Gin Phillips as she discusses her new book The Hidden Summer. After a falling out between their mothers, 12-year-old best friends Nell and Lydia are forbidden from seeing each other for the whole summer.  Determined to find a place of their own, Nell and Lydia spend the summer hiding out in an abandoned golf course where they find mysterious symbols scattered throughout the grounds. As they reveal the secret of the symbols, Nell discovers she isn’t the only one seeking an escape. She begins to uncover what’s really been hidden all along… both inside the golf course and within herself.

Gin Phillips grew up in Montgomery, Al., and has been writing for as long as she can gin Phillipsremember. (She’s pretty sure her first story was about a talking dog.) After earning a degree in Political Journalism from Birmingham-Southern College, Gin worked as a freelance magazine writer for nearly a decade. She’s lived in Ireland, Thailand, New York, and Washington, D.C. (She loves traveling almost as much as she loves writing.) Her first novel, The Well and the Mine, was published by Hawthorne Books in February 2008. In 2009, the book won the Barnes & Noble Discover Award and was re-released by Riverhead, an imprint of Penguin Books. The novel has been printed in six different languages across the globe. Gin now lives in Birmingham with her husband, her kids, and her schnoodle.
