The Garland family stumbles through life dealing with the death of the family’s only son. Fifteen years after the accident, the sisters Josie and Meredith continue to plod through life. One has given up her dream to be an actress and has married and settled down while the other is a single elementary school teacher who can hear her biological clock ticking.


This is the premise for author Emily Giffin’s latest novel “First Comes Love!,” which Schuler Books & Music celebrates the paperback release with a visit by Giffin Wednesday, April 5. The 7 p.m. Girls Night Out event will be ticketed.


The author of “Something Borrowed,” “Where we Belong,” and “The One & Only,” took two years before releasing “First Comes Love!” which received widespread praise in its hardcover release last year. “Publishers Weekly” said “Giffin at her finest–a fantastic, memorable story.”


Giffin is a graduate of Wake Forest University and the University of Virginia School of Law. She lives in Atlanta with her husband and three children.


Tickets will be available beginning Tuesday, April 4, at the Schuler Books & Music 2660 28th St. location only, when the store opens at 9am. Seated tickets (tickets #1-100) are available with purchase of a paperback copy of “First Comes Love!” Standing room tickets (tickets 101 and up) are available with no purchase necessary. The signing will proceed after the talk in approximate ticket number order (we will call in groups of 10).
