Meet the Author: Lynda Cohen Loigman

Hello Library Readers!

We are super excited to announce that author Lynda Cohen Loigman will be visiting us LCLon February 7 @ 7pm.  Loigman is the author of two novels, The Two Family House (2016) and The Wartime Sisters (2019).

The Two Family House tells the story of two sister in laws who live in, you guessed it, a twofamhousetwo family house!  They end up getting pregnant at the same time by accident, and when a terrible blizzard strikes, end up delivering their babies inside the home at the very same time. But then something happens…something that changes their lives FOREVER.

The Wartime Sisters takes place during the early days of WWII and follows the stories of wartime sisterstwo sisters.  One of the sisters is an officer’s wife and the other an army widow who takes a job in the armory campus as a soldier of production.  As the war wages on, the sisters begin to harbor resentment towards each other. Then one day, a figure from the past appears, exposing secrets in their lives.

Loigman has received excellent praise for both of her novels. The Two Family House was chosen by GoodReads in March 2016 as Best Historical Fiction Novel of the month and was nominated in the GoodReads 2016 Choice Awards in Historical Fiction. Pam Jenoff, NY Times Bestselling author of The Orphan’s Tale has said “Loigman skillfully chronicles the complex sibling bonds and rivalries, the secrets we keep and truths that set us free. Loigman’s strong voice and artful prose earn her a place in the company of Alice Hoffman and Anita Diamant, whose readers should flock to this wondrous new book.”

The Livingston Public Library’s Get Lit book club read The Two Family House for their January book discussion and absolutely adored it, unanimously agreeing that the novel was extremely hard to put down.   

The Friends of the Livingston Public Library will have a limited number of copies of The Wartime Sisters available for purchase the day of the event.  For more information, check out our calendar here, we hope to see you there!
