In Search of Emily


Susan Nelson, author of the recently published novel “In Search of Emily” will speak at Decorah Public Library at 7 p.m. Thursday December 17 in the 2nd floor Mezzanine Gallery. Books will be available for purchase following Nelson’s talk.


About “In Search of Emily:”

Emily has a chance to get out. She takes it. She leaves with little, only what is hers, the car, her pets, the oil paints and canvases. She wants nothing more from Marcus. Her late maternal grandmother, whom she had only a faint memory of, has given her the means of escape. There is nothing to keep her from leaving. With her marriage in ruin, no friends she could call her own, and no family, she is free. Emily does not know what is ahead, but she does know it will be better than what she has now.


Author Susan Nelson has four other finished novels and eight more in process, including a three-part fairy tale. She is assisted in her writing endeavors by husband Steven (support staff) and several dogs and birds, some of whom talk and all of whom find their way into Susan’s stories.
