A special summer book club read featuring the author of our selected book as discussion facilitator! Join author Kerry Winfrey in her adult novel debut, set in Columbus, with Waiting for Tom Hanks, a delightfully charming and funny novel starring a rom-com-obsessed romantic waiting for her perfect leading man.
Annie Cassidy dreams of being the next Nora Ephron. She spends her days writing screenplays, re-watching Sleepless in Seattle, and waiting for her movie-perfect meet-cute. If she could just find her own Tom Hanks—a man who’s sweet, sensitive, and possibly owns a houseboat—her problems would disappear and her life would be perfect. But Tom Hanks is nowhere in sight.
When a movie starts filming in her neighborhood and Annie gets a job on set, it seems like a sign. Then Annie meets the lead actor, Drew Danforth, a cocky prankster who couldn’t be less like Tom Hanks if he tried. Their meet-cute is more of a meet-fail, but soon Annie finds herself sharing some classic rom-com moments with Drew. Her Tom Hanks can’t be an actor who’s leaving town in a matter of days . . . can he?
