Vaudeville days

turner sistersFor her latest novel, BC alumna Juliette Fay travels back to 1919 to tell the story of the four Turner sisters who, faced with a dire financial situation, try their luck as an acrobatic act in vaudeville. The sisters face unexpected possibilities, love and heartbreak, and the dawn of a new American era. According to Fay, The Tumbling Turner Sisters (Gallery Books, Simon & Schuster, 2016) was inspired by the life of her vaudevillian great-grandfather. A book launch event will be held June 9 at 7 p.m. at the Sandy Burr Country Club in Wayland, Mass. A review from Publishers Weekly states:”With humor, affection, ambition, and a talent for weaving in history, Fay brings the world of 1910s vaudeville vividly to life through the travails of the tenacious Turner family.”
