NEW CANAN, Conn. -- Debut novelist Laura Nicole Diamond will be promoting her new book "Shelter Us" from noon to 2:30 p.m. Saturday at Elm Street Books, 35 Elm St., New Canaan.

"Shelter Us" is about characters in search of refuge, both literal and metaphorical, seeking comfort, safety and a sense of belonging, according to a press release.

Diamond explores how grief can divide people, how the bonds of marriage can twist and fray under pressure and how consolation can be found in the unlikeliest places, according to a press release.

"Shelter Us" examines how two women from vastly different worlds in the same city break convention to bridge the apparent chasm that divides their lives, according to a press release.

It shines a light on themes of Jewish identity and assimilation, individual and community responses to homelessness, immigration and assimilation, and coping with bereavement, according to a press release.
