About Finding Margaret Fuller: A “sweeping” (Entertainment Weekly) novel of America’s forgotten leading lady, the central figure of a movement that defined a nation—from the New York Times bestselling author of The Magnificent Lives of Marjorie Post

About Emily Franklin: Emily Franklin is the author of more than twenty books including The Lioness of Boston, historic fiction about the life of Isabella Stewart Gardner, a daring visionary who, in the 1800s, survived tragedy and created an inimitable legacy in American art and transformed the city of Boston. Her young adult books include The Half-Life of Planets (nominated for YALSA’s Best Book of the Year) and Tessa Masterson Will Go to Prom and Last Night at the Circle Cinema. A former chef, she wrote the cookbook-memoir Too Many Cooks: Kitchen Adventures with 1 Mom, 4 Kids, and 102 New Recipes to chronicle a year of new foods, family meals, hilarity and heartache around the table. Her debut poetry collection, Tell Me How You Got Here, was published in 2021. Her work has been published in the New York Times, The Boston Globe, Kenyon Review, and Guernica among other places as well as long listed for the London Sunday Times Short Story Award, featured on National Public Radio, and named notable by the Association of Jewish Libraries.

About The Lioness of Boston: “Brings Isabella Stewart Gardner fully, intimately alive—irrepressible and avid for life. In this richly compelling novel, Emily Franklin beautifully conjures this extraordinary woman and her world.”—Claire Messud, author of The Emperor’s Children
