Judy Goldman Reading and Booksigning

17 Oct 2012

On Wednesday, October 17 at 7:00 p.m., Malaprop's Bookstore & Cafe will host Judy Goldman, who will read from and sign her memoir, Losing My Sister. "Family stories grow to be bigger than the experiences themselves," writes Judy Goldman. "They become home to us, tell us who we are, who we want to be. Over the years, they take on more and more embellishments and adornments until they eclipse the actual memory. They become our past--just as a snapshot will, at first, enhance a memory, then replace it." Goldman is also the author of The Early Leaving and The Slow Way Back, which won the Sir Walter Raleigh Fiction Award and the Mary Ruffin Poole First Work of Fiction Award, and was a finalist for the Southeast Booksellers Association's Best Novel of the Year.

This event is free and open to the public.
