About the Author

Lesley Kagen is a multi-award-winning, New York Times bestselling author of nine previous novels, an actress, voice-over-talent, sought-after speaker, child advocate, student storyteller, and writing instructor. The mother of two and grandmother of two, she lives in a hundred and fifty year old farmhouse in a small town in Wisconsin.


Praise for Every Now and Then:
"Kagen skillfully spins a nostalgic tale...This fast-paced and suspenseful outing will captivate Kagen's fans and do much to win her new ones."
--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Kagen thoughtfully captures the spirit of '60s small-town America, showing both the idyllic, rosy past that inspires nostalgia and its troubling underbelly."

"A quick and easy read about friendship, family, and community. I recommend this for anyone looking for a heartwarming coming-of-age story with lovable, endearing characters."
--The Girly Book Club

"A wonderful coming-of-age tale...Refreshing."
--New York Journal of Books

"Every Now and Then hits it out of the park with Kagen's trademark folksy vernacular, larger-than-life escapades...and characters who mix the innocence of their age with a certain grown up wisdom...Every Now and Then is for everyone who loves a good story."
--Jill Miner, owner of Saturn Booksellers

"Using true-to-life regional language, Kagen offers us a delightful, entertaining book with very serious undertones...I certainly recommend this book!"
--Nancy Simpson-Brice, Book Vault

"A complete winner. It reminded me of the best parts of To Kill A Mockingbird, and the wonderful friendship displayed by Kate DiCamillo's three amigos in the Raymie Nightingale trilogy. Filled with all the charm of a 1960's small town, Every Now and Then also tackles issues of racism, homophobia, and gender that are topical today. Biz, Frankie, and Viv are sure to steal any reader's heart."
--Pamela Klinger-Horn, Excelsior Bay Books

Filled with secrets, lies, and all the truth of what is to be human, especially in a small town, Every Now and Then is a story every heart will embrace."
William Kent Krueger, New York Times Bestselling Author of Ordinary Grace and This Tender Land

"With a grace reminiscent of Pat Conroy's The Prince of Tides, Lesley Kagen paints a tragic and evocative of a childhood summer disrupted by tragedy in 1960s Wisconsin...Both a memorable coming of age tale and suspenseful page-turner. Longtime and new fans of Kagen will delight!"
Pam Jenoff, New York Times bestselling author of The Lost Girls of Paris

"Lesley Kagen's Every Now and Then ticks all the best boxes...This novel is delightful and the perfect summer read."
--Laurie Frankel, New York Times bestselling author of This Is How It Always Is

"[A] richly imagined coming-of-age adventure."
--Beth Hoffman, New York Times bestselling author of Saving CeeCee Honeycutt

"A rollicking good read!"
--Ellen Marie Wiseman, bestselling author of What She Left Behind and The Orphan Collector

"A poignant, beautifully told story...This novel is delightful and unputdownable - I can't recommend it enough!"
--Jane Healey, bestselling author of The Beantown Girls
