If All Arkansas Read the Same Book, June 10, 2021: Fiona Davis discusses The Lions of Fifth Avenue
The Arkansas Center for the Book at the Arkansas State Library presents our first 2021 If All Arkansas Read the Same Book event. Fiona Davis will join us live to discuss the writing of her novel, The Lions of Fifth Avenue, with time for audience Q&A.

Fiona Davis is the nationally bestselling author of historical novels set in iconic New York City buildings, including The Lions of Fifth Avenue, The Chelsea Girls and The Address. She began her career in New York City as an actress, working on Broadway, off-Broadway, and in regional theater. After receiving her master's degree from the Columbia Journalism School, she fell in love with writing as an editor and a freelance journalist before writing fiction. In addition, Davis is the co-editor for the recently published anthology, Stories from Suffragette City, presenting a series of short stories centered on a 1915 New York City parade for women’s suffrage.

The Lions of Fifth Avenue follows a parallel narrative set in 1913 and 1993, in which book thefts from the New York Public Library (Main Branch on Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street) connect the time periods.
