Join us on Wednesday, February 1st at 7:00pm to hear Westchester authors Roni Beth Tower and Sarah Bracey White discuss their recently published memoirs, the writing process, and forging life’s paths without a map. After their discussion, attendees are encouraged to ask questions, and then the authors will sign their books (available for purchase). This is an opportunity for all writers, and readers of memoirs, that should not be missed!
Roni Beth’s Miracle at Midlife: A Transatlantic Romance chronicles the two-year courtship between a divorced American attorney living on a converted barge in the center of Paris and a Connecticut based clinical and research psychologist as they conquer challenges, share adventures in their respective worlds, and are both transformed as they create a life together. Throughout their journey, stories of courage, joy and integrity bring hope and delight to those who wonder how romantic love appears and evolves; inspiration to people in mid-life who, knowingly or unknowingly, have completed a chapter in their lives and are ready to move on; and comfort to anyone who longs to wrestle and conquer the demons of fear, born of history or of the unknown, and win.
Sarah Bracey White’s Primary Lessons: A Memoir reveals her coming-of-age story as Sarah travels first from an idyllic childhood in Philadelphia – with her beloved Aunt Susie – to Sumter, South Carolina. There, in a poor, single-parent household, she struggles to maintain her sense-of-self under the yoke of Jim Crow segregation and family problems. Her dream is to escape the south and live the kind of life she reads about in books. She never lost her determination or sense of self or her powers of expression, as this lauded volume attests.
