"From an early age, books were my constant companions and my local library a place I could find a new friend on every shelf," Parker said in a statement. "I'm thrilled to help champion original voices for dedicated readers as well as for a new generation, supporting libraries in what they do best."
"A lot of people I knew were at a very interesting point in their relationship," she explains. "It's a reckoning of where we are, versus where we thought we would be, with people contemplating affairs, having affairs, surviving affairs or with marriages destroyed. I knew women who came out of divorces feeling triumphant, and others who felt it wasn't at all like they thought the liberation would be."
