J. Courtney Sullivan, a Milton native and a New York Times bestselling author, will appear at local bookshops this week and next month to read from and sign copies of her third and newest book, The Engagements.

Sullivan will be reading at the following dates and venues:

  • Thursday, June 13, 7 p.m., Barnes and Noble at 1 Worcester Rd. in Framingham
  • Friday, June 14, 7 p.m., Concord Bookshop at 65 Main St. in Concord
  • Wednesday, July 10, 7 p.m., Harvard Bookstore at 1256 Massachusetts Ave. in Cambridge
  • Monday, July 22, 7 p.m., Wilmington Memorial Library at 175 Middlesex Ave. in Wilmington

Sullivan received praise and a spot on the New York Times bestseller's list for her first two novels, Commencement and Maine. Maine was named a "best book of the year" by Time Magazine, and a Washington Post "notable book" for 2011.

The Engagements is a novel focusing on four unique marriages, while tracing the story of diamonds in America and how the glittering stones have come to symbolize love.

Sullivan's writing has also appeared in The New York Times, the Chicago Tribune, The Wall Street Journal, Glamour, Allure, Real Simple, and New York Magazine, among others.

Sullivan, 29, grew up in an Irish-Catholic family in Milton, graduated from Smith College, and moved to New York. She currently lives in Brooklyn, N.Y.
