NEW HAVEN - Sandi Kahn Shelton will be the star as New Haven Public Library presents Writers Live! from 6 to 7 p.m. Dec. 10. Shleton will discuss her recent novel, Kissing Games of the World (Shaye Areheart Books, 2008). Shelton, of Guilford, is the author of the novels "What Comes After Crazy" and "A Piece of Normall," plus three nonfiction books on parenting.
A feature writer for the New Haven Register, she also id a frequent contributor to Working Mother, Family Circle, Woman's Day, and Redbook magazines.
Booklist says "Shelton delves into family relationships with humor and empathy." Shelton writes that "some people (say) these books are hilarious and side-splittingly funny (like) "chick lit"…while others see only the hard parts of the characters' struggles to find themselves amid the confusion and grief wrought by their earlier lives and losses."
From Kissing Games of the World: "If there's one point that Jamie McClintock and Nate Goddard can agree upon, it's that love is overrated. Jamie doesn't have time for it. Nate doesn't need it. And they certainly don't want it from each other."
