Dorothy Foltz-Gray Presents Her Memoir on Being & Losing a Twin

27 Feb 2013

On Wednesday, February 27, 7pm at Malaprop's Bookstore/Cafe, Dorothy Foltz-Gray, an award-winning poet and journalist, will present and sign her memoir "With and Without Her," in which she recounts not only the extraordinary phenomenon of growing up in a world that could not distinguish her from another human being, but also the struggle to survive the loss of her twin. In "With and Without Her," Foltz-Gray describes the imagined womb life she and her sister shared, their childhood and family, and their dreams of sharing each other’s lives. She also details the nightmare of her sister’s death, its immediate aftermath, and her attempts to recover her self. She is a winner of the Tennessee Arts Commission Fellowship for Poetry; a Mature Media Gold Award; and an East Tennessee Society of Professional Journalists Award of Excellence.

This event is free and open to the public.
