New York Times bestselling author Lauren Groff, whose novel “Fates and Furies” was included on many “Best of 2015” lists, will be at the Savoy Bookshop and Café in Westerly on Thursday to do a book talk and signing in conjunction with the release of “Florida.”

Groff’s “Florida” is a short story collection where the “threats and mysteries are of a human, emotional, and psychological nature. Among those navigating it all are a resourceful pair of abandoned sisters; a lonely boy, grown up; a restless, childless couple, a searching, homeless woman; and an unforgettable, recurring character — a steely and conflicted wife and mother.”

Groff’s other works include “Arcadia,” which was included on the list of best books of 2012 by The New York Times and The Washington Post, among others.

Groff’s book talk at Savoy begins at 7 p.m., and admission is free. Book sales support the Jonnycake Center of Westerly. Call (401) 213-3901 for more information.
