The Millburn Library is pleased to welcome Suzanne Riss and Jill Sockwell, local authors of the best-selling book The Optimist's Guide to Divorce, on Tuesday, May 2 at 7 pm.

Wise, comforting, and uplifting, The Optimist’s Guide to Divorce captures the experience of sisterhood through the voices of its authors and their community of women in the Maplewood Divorce Club—women who understand what you’re going through, who know the practical issues as well as the emotional ones, and who can help you keep a sense of hope and a sense of humor.
Brimming with stories and insights, valuable resources and smart strategies, in-the-trenches tips and sanity-saving takeaways, this book prepares you for each phase of divorce, from having “the talk,” to breaking the news to family and friends, to figuring out where to live, to co-parenting with an ex, to rebounding and rebooting your life. 

Publisher's Weekly said, “The warm and empowering tone of this book will convince readers that there’s life on the other side of a painful divorce.”
