Harvard Club hosts 'Shortest Way Home' author


The Andover Townsman

---- — Juliette Fay, Kennedy School of Government ‘92, and bestselling novelist, will discuss her third book “The Shortest Way Home” the Harvard Club of Andover at the Andover Book Store, 89 Main St. at 6:30 pm on Thursday, Nov. 29.

The book is published by Viking Penguin.

“Juliette relates to us how her signature character Sean Doran has spent two decades away from his Belham, Mass. home, working as a nurse in disaster-stricken countries around the world,” according to a release from the club. “In 2009, Juliette Fay delighted readers with her debut novel ‘Shelter Me’ – the February 2009 Good Housekeeping ‘Book Pick.’ With her second novel ‘Deep Down True,’ Fay received glowing praise from writers like Emily Giffin — ‘sincere, powerful, and heartfelt’ - and Marisa de los Santos — ‘intensely human characters.’”

Juliette Fay will speak to the Harvard Club of Andover chapter members and the public.

The HCA sponsors a variety of educational, cultural, and charitable events year round.
