Eleanor Brown is the New York Times and national-bestselling author of The Weird Sisters, hailed by People magazine as “a delightful debut” and “creative and original” by Library Journal. Chosen as a Best Book of the Month by Barnes & Noble and Amazon, The Weird Sisters was also selected as a Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers title and is scheduled for release internationally.
The Weird Sisters is the belated coming-of-age story of three adult daughters of a renowned Shakespeare professor who return home to the small college town where they were raised, partly because their mother is ill, but mostly because their lives are falling apart and they don’t know where to go next. Rich with themes ranging from the effects of birth order to navigating the complicated waters of adulthood and the power of reading and literature, The Weird Sisters has been embraced by readers everywhere.
Years of theater and teaching have made Eleanor a dynamic and engaging speaker, as warm and funny as her celebrated debut novel.
Born and raised in the Washington, D.C., area, Eleanor has lived in St. Paul, San Francisco, Philadelphia, South Florida, and Oxford, London, and Brighton, England. She holds an MA in literature and lives in Colorado with her partner, writer J.C. Hutchins.
