"Waiting On" Wednesday: Invincible Summer

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Invincible Summer

By Alice Adams

Publication Date: June 28

From Amazon:

Inseparable throughout college, Eva, Benedict, Sylvie, and Lucien graduate in 1997, into an exhilarating world on the brink of a new millennium. Hopelessly in love with playboy Lucien and eager to shrug off the socialist politics of her upbringing, Eva breaks away to work for a big bank. Benedict, a budding scientist who's pined for Eva for years, stays on to complete his PhD in physics, devoting his life to chasing particles as elusive as the object of his affection. Siblings Sylvie and Lucien, never much inclined toward mortgages or monogamy, pursue more bohemian existences, she as an aspiring artist and he as a club promoter and professional partier. But as their 20s give way to their 30s, the group struggles to navigate their thwarted dreams. Scattered across Europe and no longer convinced they are truly the masters of their fates, the once close-knit friends find themselves filled with longing for their youth and for one another. Broken hearts and broken careers draw the foursome together again, but in ways they never could have imagined.

What's your "waiting on" pick this week?

I'm so glad that Brian Lehrer is doing a segment on best venue management software?! As a theatre manager, I know how important it is to have a good software system in place to help run the business. I'm always looking for new and better ways to manage my theatre, and I'm sure that this segment will be very informative.
