Join us for a reading from this inspiring and wonderfully-reviewed new memoir.
At thirty-six, Kelly lives deep within what she calls the Middle Place—“that sliver of time when parenthood and childhood overlap”—comfortably wedged between her adult duties and her parents’ care. But she’s abruptly shoved into a coming-of-age when she finds a lump in her breast—and gets the diagnosis no one wants to hear. When her father, too, learns he has late-stage cancer, it is Kelly’s turn to take care of the man who had always taken care of her—and finally take the leap and grow up.
Kelly Corrigan is a New York Times bestselling author whose writing has appeared in O Magazine, Glamour and Good Housekeeping. Her newspaper columns for the Bay Area News Group cover everyday matters from the power of an unequivocal apology to the contagious nature of weight gain, extramarital affairs and going green.
