Writing Secrets


Sidonia’s Thread author Hanna Perlstein Marcus and I will reprise last year’s Mother’s Day celebration by talking about our books, which will be available for signatures, Saturday May 9 at 2 p.m. at the Russell Library, 123 Broad Street, Middletown.

Here’s a preview: Hanna and I were born half a world apart, but we’ve led parallel lives. Our talks explore these similarities – as well as the obvious differences in our experiences.

As she reads from Sidonia’s Thread, I’ll read from At Home Inside: A Daughter’s Tribute to Ann Petry. We’ll share photos of our respective families.

Come find a couple of terrific Mother’s Day gifts for the women in your life.
