Author Reception: The Story Behind the Book,
The women behind three new books discuss how they produced them and why.
Preserving family stories, personalizing historic events, setting the record straight—these are some of the many reasons for writing down one’s story. Authors Shirly Hook, Sara Tucker, and Joan Feierabend will discuss the personal motivations behind three new books: a collection of stories that delve into the writer’s Abenaki heritage; a memoir translated from a French manuscript; and an anthology by a local writers group. The event, which is co-sponsored by Kimball Library, Chandler Center for the Arts, and Korongo Books will take place on Sunday, October 20, at 2 pm in Chandler’s Esther Mesh Gallery. Signed copies of the books will be available.
