The ‘Call Me By Your Name’ book sequel is coming this October.

After much discussion around what would follow ‘Call Me By Your Name’, book publisher Farrar, Straus and Giroux have now announced that the book’s author André Aciman is writing a sequel to the incredibly popular first book.

The book will be called ‘Find Me’ and is set for release on October 29, 2019. The plot is outlined as follows: “In Find Me, Aciman shows us Elio’s father Samuel, now divorced, on a trip from Florence to Rome to visit Elio, who has become a gifted classical pianist. A chance encounter on the train leads to a relationship that changes Sami’s life definitively. Elio soon moves to Paris where he too has a consequential affair, while Oliver, now a professor in northern New England with sons who are nearly grown, suddenly finds himself contemplating a return visit to Europe.”

In a statement to Vulture about the sequel, Aciman said: “The world of Call Me by Your Name never left me. Though I created the characters and was the author of their lives, what I never expected was that they’d end up teaching me things about intimacy and about love that I didn’t quite think I knew until I’d put them down on paper. The film made me realize that I wanted to be back with them and watch them over the years — which is why I wrote Find Me.”
