Emily Giffin

UPDATE: Due to circumstances - and out of respect for the ongoing BLM protests and the vitally important national dialogue currently taking place - we are rescheduling this event for Wednesday, June 24th. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Interabang Books welcomes back the bestselling favorite Emily Giffin as she discusses her new book THE LIES THAT BIND with Where is Pidge? author Michelle Staubach Grimes, another great friend of ours. The book is new and so is the event format: This time it's virtual.

In the irresistible new novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of ALL WE EVER WANTED and SOMETHING BORROWED, a young woman falls hard for an impossibly perfect man before he disappears without a trace. . . . 

Our one-hour Zoom event includes a Q&A with questions submitted by ticket-holders. Tickets are available through Eventbrite, and you may purchase them here. Your ticket includes
* your hardcover copy of the book signed by Emily. You may pick it up in the store on or after June 2 (the day of its release), or we can mail it to an address that you provide by email.
* an access code/link to the livestreamed Zoom Webinar. You’ll receive the Zoom link by email multiple times prior to the event.

**To be clear: This is an online event and will not take place at our bookstore.**


It’s 2 A.M. on a Saturday in the spring of 2001, and 28-year-old Cecily Gardner sits alone in a bar in New York’s East Village. Lonesome and homesick for the Midwest, she wonders if she’ll make it as a reporter in the big city—and whether she made a mistake in breaking up with her longtime boyfriend. 

As Cecily reaches for the phone to call him, a guy on the barstool next to her says, “Don’t do it—you’ll regret it.” Something tells her to listen, and over the next several hours—and shots of tequila—the two forge an unlikely connection. That should be it, they both decide the next morning, as Cecily reminds herself of the perils of a rebound relationship. Moreover, their timing couldn’t be worse: the guy, Grant, is preparing to quit his job and move overseas. Yet they can’t seem to say goodbye, and Cecily follows her heart instead of her head. 

Grant disappears in the chaos of 9/11. Cecily spots his face on a missing-person poster and realizes she is not the only one searching for him. The questions pile up fast: How well did she know this man? Did he really love her? And is it possible to love someone who wasn’t who he seemed to be? 

THE LIES THAT BIND is a mesmerizing, emotionally resonant exploration of the never-ending search for love and truth — in our relationships, our careers, and deep within our own hearts.

Emily Giffin is the author of nine internationally bestselling novels: Something Borrowed, Something Blue, Baby Proof, Love the One You’re With, Heart of the Matter, Where We Belong, The One & Only, First Comes Love, and All We Ever Wanted. A graduate of Wake Forest University and the University of Virginia School of Law, she lives in Atlanta with her husband and three children.
