Amber Smith presents Something Like Gravity, in conversation with Jennie Liu

We're pleased to welcome Amber Smith back to Malaprop's with her latest Young Adult novel.

“Amber Smith’s SOMETHING LIKE GRAVITY is a tender, beautifully told story of first love and first loss and how finding the right person at the right time can be very thing that saves us. You will love Chris and Maia from the very first page of this gorgeous novel and will miss them long after you’ve finished.”

– Julie Buxbaum, New York Times bestselling author of TELL ME THREE THINGS

Amber Smith is the New York Times bestselling author of the young adult novels The Way I Used to BeThe Last to Let Go, and Something Like Gravity. An advocate for increased awareness of gendered violence, as well as LGBTQ equality, she writes in the hope that her books can help to foster change and spark dialogue surrounding these issues. She grew up in Buffalo, New York, and now lives in Charlotte, North Carolina, with her partner and their ever-growing family of rescued dogs and cats. She will be in conversation with Megan Shepherd, author of Grim Lovelies.

Amber will be joined in conversation by Asheville local Jennie Liu, author of Girls on the Line.
