Succeed2gether's Montclair Literary Festival is thrilled to welcome iconic author Isabel Allende to a pre-festival event in Montclair on Wednesday, January 22, 2020, to discuss her latest novel, A Long Petal of the Sea, a masterful work of historical fiction about hope, exile, and belonging.

This epic novel, spanning decades and crossing continents, follows two young people as they flee the aftermath of the Spanish Civil War in search of a place to call home.

Tickets ($40) will include a copy of A Long Petal of the Sea or Largo pétalo de mar, the Spanish edition of the novel. Books will be pre-signed by the author. The VIP admission ($100) includes a post-event cocktail party, priority entry and reserved seating. Tickets available
