Novelist and Greenwich Academy alum Courtney Maum will be here to read from and discuss her new novel Costalegre
. The book is heavily inspired by the real-life relationship between the heiress Peggy Guggenheim and her daughter, Pegeen. It's a wildly imaginative and curiously touching story of a privileged teenager who has everything a girl could wish for except for a mother who loves her back.
