Virtual Author Talk with Lillie Lainoff, DC native and writer of One for All!

Monday, March 21, 2022
5-6 p.m.


Join the DC Public Library for an author talk with Lillie Lainoff! Lainoff recently published her debut Young Adult novel, One for All.

One for All is a gender-bent retelling of The Three Musketeers, in which a girl with a chronic illness trains as a Musketeer and uncovers secrets, sisterhood, and self-love. Lillie is excited to discuss her journey of writing the story she always wanted to read growing up, her favorite parts of writing strong female characters, and why this book is perfect for teen and adult readers alike. 

This is a virtual event that will stream to the library's Youtube Channel:

Book cover for Lille Lainoff's "One For All." Depicts an illustration of a woman with brown hair in an updo wearing an old fashioned red dress. She's holding a sword while other sword tips surround her from all directions.
About the Book:

Tania de Batz is most herself with a sword in her hand. Everyone thinks her near-constant dizziness makes her weak, nothing but “a sick girl.” But Tania wants to be strong, independent, a fencer like her father―a former Musketeer and her greatest champion. Then Papa is brutally, mysteriously murdered. His dying wish? For Tania to attend finishing school. But L’Académie des Mariées, Tania realizes, is no finishing school. It’s a secret training ground for new Musketeers: women who are socialites on the surface, but strap daggers under their skirts, seduce men into giving up dangerous secrets, and protect France from downfall. And they don’t shy away from a sword fight.

With her newfound sisters at her side, Tania feels that she has a purpose, that she belongs. But then she meets Étienne, her target in uncovering a potential assassination plot. He’s kind, charming―and might have information about what really happened to her father. Torn between duty and dizzying emotion, Tania will have to decide where her loyalties lie…or risk losing everything she’s ever wanted.

Lillie Lainoff's debut novel is a fierce, whirlwind adventure about the depth of found family, the strength that goes beyond the body, and the determination it takes to fight for what you love. Includes an author's note about her personal experience with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome.
