Ann Brashares

Ann performed on stage for Seriously Entertaining at Joe’s Pub at The Public Theater on September 26, 2017, speaking on the evening’s theme, “One for the Road.” 

Ann Brashares is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series, The Here and Now, 3 Willows, The Last Summer (of You and Me), and My Name Is Memory. Her most recent novel, The Summer Bed, was published in 2019. She lives in New York City with her family.

In her own words: “I don’t really write with the idea of trying to teach any lessons. I want to tell a story as truthfully and engagingly as I can, and then let the chips fall where they may.”
