Event date: 
Friday, May 10, 2013 - 6:00pm

A Room of One's Own is pleased to host the book launch of local author Andrea Lochen's debut novel, The Repeat Year, which is set in Madison!

The Repeat Year is the story of Olive Watson, a young intensive care nurse who wakes up on New Year’s Day to find herself reliving the previous year. With this unique insight, she must navigate the prior year’s challenges and mistakes—lost patients, an affair that ended a committed relationship, the remarriage of her mother. Olive’s path intersects with Sherry Witan, a fifty-eight-year-old eccentric, who turns out to be an experienced “repeater” and an unlikely mentor with her own demons to face.

Andrea Lochen is an alumna of the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She earned her Master of Fine Arts from the University of Michigan, where she also received the Hopwood Novel Award. Her debut novel, The Repeat Year, will be released in May 2013 and has been described as a “magical realist rom-com of great charm.” She currently lives in Wauwatosa and teaches Creative Writing at the University of Wisconsin-Waukesha.
