Garden State Top Authors Gather at BooksNJ

On June 11th, #HipNJ’s Lisa Marie Latino was at BooksNJ, a celebration of writing, reading, and books! The event featured panel discussions, readings, storytelling and crafts.

This free, family-friendly event was brought to the masses by the Bergen County Cooperative Library System (BCCLS), a 77 member public library consortium located throughout Bergen, Hudson, Essex, and Passaic Counties, and the Paramus Public Library, Berkeley College and the New Jersey State Library.

On the beautiful grounds of the Paramus Public Library, Lisa Marie chatted with the top authors and literary leaders that help shape the Garden State’s book scene.

“The Memory Box”

#HipNJ author Eva Lesko Natiello poses a very spooky question: “What would you do if you Googled yourself and uncovered something shocking?”

#HipNJ’s Lisa Marie Latino sat down with the successful first-time author at the Jersey Shore to learn about “The Memory Box”, an Amazon #1 Bestseller. The psychological thriller is about a young woman who Googles herself and discovers details of a past she doesn’t remember.

As a #HipNJ resident, Natiello’s novel was greatly influenced by the Garden State.

“Being a suburban mother-of-two helped bring life to the characters and plot line,” explained Eva.

Within the last six months, she has visited over 60 book clubs, which allows her to interact with her readers on a more personal level.

“It has been incredible. It’s been my own special book tour. Most people who have book clubs read books and never get to meet the author. I get to meet people that have read it, so really it’s magical for both of us,” proclaimed Eva.

Eva and Lisa Marie took to the sand to reach out to beach-goers and give out copies of “The Memory Box”.  Diane Schott and her group of friends were lucky enough to each get their hands on a copy of the thriller.

“The premise is be careful what you search for. We are all social media savvy and we’ve all Googled ourselves. Just the idea of finding something we don’t know about is very intriguing,” said Diane.

“The Memory Box” is available in paperback and Kindle on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or a bookstore near you!
