A Life No One Will Remember. A Story You Will Never Forget.

 V.E. Schwab will share her book and answer questions about her novel, The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue with Kelle Ruden and the Westport community.

France,1714: in a moment of desperation, a young woman makes a Faustian bargain to live forever and is cursed to be forgotten by everyone she meets.  Thus begins the extraordinary life of Addie LaRue, and a dazzling adventure that will play out across centuries and continents, across history and art, as a young woman learns how far she will go to leave her mark on the world.

But everything changes when, after nearly 300 years, Addie stumbles across a young man in a hidden bookstore and he remembers her name.
