(TOMS RIVER, NJ) -- The Ocean County Library Tuckerton Branch will host award-winning author J.C. Sutton on Thursday, July 14 at 2:00pm. The Tuckerton resident will sign copies of her new novel Under the Guillotine: A Tale of Two Royals.
Under the Guillotine highlights the friendship of Marie Antoinette and Louisa, Princess of Lamballe, whose memoirs inspired the historical fiction saga. It follows the women from their teen years to the Revolution that took their lives before they turned 40 years of age.
The National Magazine Award nominee has written for Cosmopolitan, Seventeen, Writer’s Digest, Good Housekeeping, New Jersey Outdoors, and other publications. Her novel Beau & Eros was recognized in the 2020 Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards.
