Amy Jones
Every Little Piece of Me
Saturday, Oct. 19 | 7 PM | Forsyth Hall
The bestselling author of We're All in This Together brings her trademark combination of sharp, observational humour and melancholy to her latest novel about friendship, fame, and the cost of living in the public eye – because when everyone suddenly knows your name, it's easy to forget who you really are. Amy Jones will be in conversation with Diana Davidson.

Every Little Piece of Me explores the intense friendship between two young women whose every move is chronicled on the public stage. Ava Hart is a reluctant cast member in her family’s reality TV show about running a B&B in small-town Nova Scotia. Mags Kovach is the charismatic lead singer of a Halifax rock band that is rising to fame after the death of the band’s bass player, who was also her husband.  

As their private tragedies are subjected to an endless stream of public commentary, their unexpected friendship is what saves them.
