On their first night in Paris, the Gamaches gather as a family for a bistro dinner with Armand’s godfather, the billionaire Stephen Horowitz. Walking home together after the meal, they watch in horror as Stephen is knocked down and critically injured in what Gamache knows is no accident, but a deliberate attempt on the elderly man’s life.

When a strange key is found in Stephen’s possession it sends Armand, his wife Reine-Marie, and his former second-in-command at the Sûreté, Jean-Guy Beauvoir, from the top of the Tour d’Eiffel, to the bowels of the Paris Archives, from luxury hotels to odd, coded works of art.

It sends them deep into the secrets Armand’s godfather has kept for decades, and a gruesome discovery in Stephen’s Paris apartment makes it clear that the secrets are more rancid—the danger far greater and more imminent—than they realized. Soon the whole family is caught up in a web of lies and deceit, and in order to find the truth, Gamache will have to decide whether he can trust his friends, his colleagues, his instincts, his past—and even his own family.

For the City of Light casts long shadows, and in that darkness devils hide.

Jenna Bush Hager - Everything Beautiful in Its Time (Virtual Event)

Tuesday, September 15, 2020 - 6:00pm

Ticket: $42 (includes a copy of Everything Beautiful in Its Time)
Tuesday, September 15, 6:00pm PT • Virtual Event

Join Today show co-anchor Jenna Bush Hager for a fun night of lively conversation with a special guest! Settle in for an evening of personal stories and laughs in celebration of all of the complicated, messy, and hilarious moments of life. Jenna will take fans behind the scenes of her life—from growing up in a political family to dating in the public eye to life on the Today show set. Through it all, she’s relied on advice from her beloved grandparents who taught her about respect, humility, kindness, and living a life of passion and meaning—timeless lessons that continue to guide her as she tackles motherhood, marriage, and (very) early wake-up calls.

In Everything Beautiful in Its Time, Jenna shares funny, moving stories about her grandparents and the wisdom they passed on that has shaped her life. To the world, George and Barbara Bush were America’s powerful president and influ­ential first lady; to Jenna Bush Hager, they were her beloved Gampy and Ganny. In Midland, Texas, Jenna’s maternal grandparents, Harold and Jenna Welch—Pa and Grammee—a home builder and homemaker, lived a quieter life outside the national spotlight. Yet their influence was no less indelible to their granddaughter. Throughout Jenna’s childhood and adolescence, the Welches taught her the name of every star in the sky, the way a dove uses her voice—teaching her to appreciate the beauty in the smallest things.

Now the mother of three young children, Jenna pays homage to her grandparents in this collection of heartwarming, intimate personal essays. Filled with love, laughter, and unforgettable stories, Everything Beautiful in Its Time captures the joyous and bittersweet nature of life itself. Jenna reflects on the single year in which she and her family lost Barbara and George H. W. Bush, and Jenna Welch. With the light, self-deprecating charm of the bestselling Sisters First—cowritten with her twin sister, Barbara—Jenna reveals how they navigated this difficult period with grace, faith, and nostalgic humor, uplifted by their grandparents’ sage advice and incomparable spirits.

Jenna Bush Hager is the cohost of the fourth hour of the Today show with Hoda Kotb and the founder of the Today book club, Read with Jenna. She is the coauthor of the #1 New York Times bestselling Ana’s Story and two children’s books—Our Great Big Backyard and Read All About It—which she wrote with her mother, Laura, as well as the #1 New York Times bestsellers Sisters First, written with her sister, Barbara, in both adult and children’s editions. She lives with her husband and three children in New York City.
