Darien Library’s 3rd Annual Novel Tea fundraiser featuring author A.J. Finn starts at 12 noon Wednesday at Wee Burn Country Club.
Finn’s debut novel, The Woman in the Window, is the most widely acquired debut novel of all time, with rights sold in 38 languages around the world.
On its publication in January 2018, the book became the first debut novel in twelve years — and only the third ever — to debut at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list, where it remained for an entire month.
The film adaptation of The Woman in the Window is currently in development at Fox, which bought the rights in a seven-figure deal.
The movie will be produced by Oscar winner Scott Rudin, of The Social Network and The Grand Budapest Hotel, and written by Tracy Letts, the Pulitzer- and Tony-winning playwright of August: Osage County.
His novel has drawn rave reviews from Stephen King and Gillian Flynn of Gone Girl fame.
He has written for numerous publications while also being the vice president and executive editor of the William Morrow imprint of HarperCollins.
If you’d like to meet A.J. Finn, he’ll be at the 3rd Annual Novel Tea fundraiser at Wee Burn Country Club on Wednesday, March 28, from 12 noon to 2 p.m. at the Wee Burn Country Club.
All funds raised from the Novel Tea will be dedicated to Darien Library resources, including technology, purchasing new books and supporting programs and guest speakers.
