Elizabeth Berg: Night of Miracles @ The University Club

We are pleased to partner with The University Club of Chicago as they welcome novelist Elizabeth Berg for a luncheon in downtown Chicago.. She'll be discussing and signing copies of her new novel, Night of Miracles. This is a ticketed event! Please call us at 847-446-8880 to make your reservation.

Night of Miracles is the feel-good book of the year: a delightful novel of friendship, community, and the way small acts of kindness can change your life, by the bestselling author of The Story of Arthur Truluv.

Lucille Howard is getting on in years, but she stays busy. Thanks to the inspiration of her dearly departed friend Arthur Truluv, she has begun to teach baking classes, sharing the secrets to her delicious classic Southern yellow cake, the perfect pinwheel cookies, and other sweet essentials. Her classes have become so popular that she's hired Iris, a new resident of Mason, Missouri, as an assistant. Iris doesn't know how to bake but she needs to keep her mind off a big decision she sorely regrets.

When a new family moves in next door and tragedy strikes, Lucille begins to look out for Lincoln, their son. Lincoln's parents aren't the only ones in town facing hard choices and uncertain futures. In these difficult times, the residents of Mason come together and find the true power of community--just when they need it the most.

"Elizabeth Berg's characters jump right off the page and into your heart" said Fannie Flagg about The Story of Arthur Truluv. The same could be said about Night of Miracles,a heartwarming novel that reminds us that the people we come to love are often the ones we don't expect.

"Elizabeth Berg is a master storyteller and one of my personal favorites. Night of Miracles is full of charming, entertaining characters that tug at the heart." --Debbie Macomber, #1 New York Times bestselling author

"The thing about an Elizabeth Berg novel is, it'll always make you feel hopeful. True to form, Night of Miracles is wise and funny, not shying away from life's troubles but spotlighting the shining small miracles and pleasures of ordinary days. And, of course, there are delicious cakes." --Jenna Blum, New York Times bestselling author ofThose Who Save Us.

An emotionally powerful novel about three people who each lose the one they love most, only to find second chances where they least expect them
