About the Event

Author Lea Geller

Please join us via Zoom for the first installment of our new author series Friends with Words

Host Annabel Monaghan will be interviewing author, blogger and humorist Lea Geller about her new book The Truth and Other Hidden Things, a freshly funny and heartfelt novel about one woman’s secret life, the stories she tells, and the thrill and notoriety of being noticed.

Cost: This is a free event, but please consider making a voluntary contribution of $20 to the Wainwright House upon registering. Ticket options are available at checkout. 

Local friends, please consider ordering your copy (available April 6) from Arcade Books in Rye: Geller is the author of Trophy Life. A recipient of the 2019 Kathryn Gurfein Writing Fellowship at Sarah Lawrence College, she began her writing career by blogging about her adventures in the trenches of parenting. 

Lea lives in New York with her husband and children, for whom she frequently wakes up and makes several separate breakfasts. When Lea’s not writing and eavesdropping on her children, she can be found running, gardening, drinking diner coffee, and occasionally teaching middle school English. She is a graduate of Columbia University and Stanford Law School. You can find Lea at

Early reviews of The Truth and Other Hidden Things:

“This engrossing romp makes for delightfully voyeuristic commentary on wealthy upstate life.” Publishers Weekly

“A brave, bold, laugh-out-loud, heartwarming, nail-biting story of family life in these uncertain times. Bells Walker is so relatable, I wanted to yell advice to her as I read. A pure delight.” —Shelley Noble, New York Times bestselling author of Lucky’s Beach

“What do you do when life throws a bunch of less than welcome surprises your way? If you’re Bells, the plucky protagonist of The Truth and Other Hidden Things, you make a string of questionable (if hilarious) choices…that land you exactly where you were always supposed to be. Lea Geller’s latest novel is a clever, witty, and insightful novel that just may inspire you to look at your own plot twists in a whole new light.” —Camille Pagán, bestselling author of This Won’t End Well

"Man, I wish I’d written this book." —Annabel Monaghan
