The library will be hosting a virtual author visit with Shana at the Valley Stream Book Club Meeting on Tuesday, October 26, 2021, at 7:30 pm, to discuss her novel, The Second Mrs. Astor:

She was a teen socialite at the end of the Gilded Age.  He was American royalty, nearly 30 years her senior.
Their scandalous tabloid courtship ended in tragedy aboard the Titanic.

But that is just the beginning of her story…

In 1910, Jack Astor was American royalty, the richest man in the world, and Fifth Avenue scion of the Gilded Age. Madeleine Force was a beautiful teenaged debutante suddenly and unexpectedly thrust into fame simply for falling in love with a famous man nearly three decades her senior.  From their scandalous courtship to their catastrophic honeymoon aboard the Titanic—a tragedy that transformed a pregnant Madeleine into an American Princess Diana of her time—their love story is brought to life in THE SECOND MRS. ASTOR, a captivating work of historical fiction by New York Times and USA Today bestselling novelist Shana Abé.
