Keene - Hope Anderson signing "The Book Sisters"

The Book family is comprised of Vern Book, an alcoholic farmer; Valley Book, the depressed mother; and the six Book sisters – Victoria, Veronica, Violet, Vera, Virginia, and Viveca. After their horrific experiences during World War II, Vern and Valley Book want nothing more than the peace.  Unfortunately, life ambushes them. As the world around them is torn apart by war and civil strife, as assassinations and riots erupt, as Nature ravages his fields and Valley breaks his heart, Vern watches his six daughters throw his dreams away.


Hope Andersen is a graduate of Wellesley College (B.A) and Yale Divinity School (M.A.R.). She began writing novels in 2015, at the age of 60. Her debut novel The Book Sisters was released in November 2017. Two subsequent works, When the Moon Winks (women’s fiction) and An Accidental Thief (YA), are in process. Since 2015, she has been commissioned to adapt to books into feature-length screenplays. In her early career, she was awarded the Wellesley College Playwriting Award for her one-act play Room, later produced at the Lyric Stage, Boston. Ms. Andersen served as a teaching assistant for George Garrett at the Stone Coast Writer’s Conference in Maine.
