In fact, Quick recounts that the idea for his latest novel, We Are the Light, came to him in 2014 “after an event (he) did at the gorgeous Ambler Theater in Pennsylvania.”  A Q&A and book signing will follow. The event will take place at the Ambler Theater, 108 E Butler Ave, Ambler, PA 19002.

In this, his 9th novel, Quick, the New York Times bestselling author of The Silver Linings Playbook, brings us a poignant and hopeful novel about a widower who takes in a grieving teenager and inspires a magical revival in their small town.

“We Are the Light is a testament to the broken and the rebuilt. … Quick’s deeply moving epistolary novel is a balm.” -⁠Booklist

“… a beautifully written and emotion-packed novel with a huge heart.” -Harlan Coben, NYT bestselling author

Matthew Quick is the NYT bestselling author of The Silver Linings Playbook and eight other novels. His work has been translated into more than 30 languages, and his books have received, among others, a PEN/Hemingway Award Honorable Mention, an LA Times Book Prize finalist, & a New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice. Matthew lives with his wife, the novelist Alicia Bessette, on North Carolina’s Outer Banks.
