    Name: An Evening with Sarah Miller
    Date: October 12, 2019
    Time: 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM EDT
    Event Description:
    We're thrilled to have Sarah Miller back in the store on Saturday, October 12th at 5:00pm to tell us about her latest YA book, The Miracle & Tragedy of the Dionne Quintuplets. This is a free event but reservations are requested. To RSVP please call us at (231) 347-1180, email us at events@mcleanandeakin.com, or through Facebook or Eventbrite. In this riveting, beyond-belief true story from the author of The Borden Murders, meet the five children who captivated the entire world. When the Dionne Quintuplets were born on May 28, 1934, weighing a grand total of just over 13 pounds, no one expected them to live so much as an hour. Overnight, Yvonne, Annette, Cécile, Émilie, and Marie Dionne mesmerized the globe, defying medical history with every breath they took. In an effort to protect them from hucksters and showmen, the Ontario government took custody of the five identical babies, sequestering them in a private, custom-built hospital across the road from their family--and then, in a stunning act of hypocrisy, proceeded to exploit them for the next nine years. The Dionne Quintuplets became a more popular attraction than Niagara Falls, ogled through one-way screens by sightseers as they splashed in their wading pool at the center of a tourist hotspot known as Quintland. Here, Sarah Miller reconstructs their unprecedented upbringing with fresh depth and subtlety, bringing to new light their resilience and the indelible bond of their unique sisterhood. SARAH MILLER is the author of The Borden Murders, a School Library Journal Best Book and an ALA-YALSA Quick Pick for Reluctant Readers. She is also the author of two historical fiction novels for young adults, Miss Spitfire: Reaching Helen Keller and The Lost Crown, about the Romanovs, both ALA-YALSA Best Books for Young Adults. In addition to her work for young readers, she is the author of the USA Today-bestselling Caroline: Little House, Revisited, which was named a Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers Selection, among other accolades.
