This is a FREE event.

Meet Author Sara Marks, who will be signing copies of her newest book, “Phi Alpha Pi.” Have a Cosmo, glass of wine, or beer at our cash bar and meet other book lovers!


Phi Alpha Pi is the oldest and largest sorority on campus and new president Lizbeth has a busy senior year ahead of her. She’s determined to keep her sorority in good standing on campus after a year on academic probation. She’s trying to manage the new sorority house manager, Mrs. C, who has her own ideas about how to support the sorority sisters. All while trying to find balance with her own academic goals to complete an honors thesis, graduate, and decide her future plans.

The last thing Lizbeth expects is her anger when Wil, a new member of the Alpha Pi fraternity, pushes every one of her buttons. Lizbeth finds Wil, a new transfer to the university with his best friend, to be rude, snobby, and judgmental. Even though she tries to avoid him, he seems to be everywhere, scowling with displeasure when he sees her. That is, until his Thanksgiving proclamation of love. That causes Lizbeth to reconsider how she sees the world and Wil.


Born in Boston, MA and raised in Miami, FL, Sara has two masters degrees and plans to never stop getting over educated.  She now lives in Lowell, MA and is a librarian at UMass Lowell.  She likes the idea of having all the academic regalia she can ever possess and winning with the most degrees in her family.  She cries at nearly every movie she sees (ask her about when she cried at a horror movie), but it’s full on weeping for Disney animated movies.  She loves reading nearly every genre, but likes to write romance and fantasy books. Phi Alpha Pi is the second book in her 21st Century Austen series. Her other books include Modern Persuasion and, the related short story collection, A Little More Modern Persuasion.
