Lisa and Francesca Are Bringing the Big Book Club Party to You!

Calling All Readers!

For 14 years, Lisa and her daughter, Francesca (co-author and fellow novelist), have hosted their BIG BOOK CLUB PARTY at their home as a way to say thank you to their wonderful readers. The event has grown so big it has been spread over two days with over 600 people per day. With the pandemic, Lisa and Francesca have had to postpone the in-person event until it is safe. But Lisa and Francesca want to bring the fun to you! Here’s how:

Calling all book clubs!
Twenty-five book clubs will be randomly chosen to win a Zoom book club visit with Lisa and Italian-themed treats to enjoy during your event!

Not in a book club? No problem.
Lisa wants everyone to have a chance to win, so she has created an “A Cappella Book Club” for individuals who enter! 100 readers will be chosen to join Lisa’s A Cappella Book Club Zoom event and receive Italian-themed treats to enjoy!

Everyone who enters
Everyone who enters will receive exclusive access to a video that lets you experience the joy of the Big Book Club Party from your own home. Tour Lisa’s house, check out her bookshelves, get an insider’s peek at her office, meet all her animals, and laugh along with Lisa and Francesca as they talk about their mother/daughter relationship, tell funny stories and talk about their books. Play it at your book club meeting, or watch it on your own!

How to enter

Take a picture of your book club with each member holding up a copy of Eternal in hardcover, audio or on e-book and submit the picture to Note: Due to COVID, you can submit your pictures individually and just include the name of your book club.
