Book Revue Author Speaking

Book Revue

Please join us for an evening with Local Author Marisa Bardach Ramel as she speaks about and signs copies of her new memoir The Goodbye Diaries. Two months to live. That’s what the doctor says. Sally responds with grace and optimism. Marisa responds by closing herself off. If her mother is going to die before she graduates from high school, why even try. Cancer has already ruined everything. Honest and heartfelt, The Goodbye Diaries offers a touching glimpse into both sides of a terminal diagnosis–the one who will leave and the one who will be left behind. Sally and Marisa have always shared a rare closeness, but their relationship is unrecognizable when Marisa cannot figure out how to be there for Sally as she struggles through stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Only seventeen, Marisa avoids her mother’s illness by filling her life with perfect prom dresses and imperfect boyfriends. But when Marisa throws herself into a tumultuous relationship, Sally performs a final act of motherhood to prepare her daughter for life without a mom. Told in alternating voices, Sally and Marisa reveal their fears, their frustrations, and their fierce connection to each other. This poignant mother-daughter memoir is an intimate look at unconditional love during a heartbreaking goodbye.

Jennifer Weiner Author talk

Cinema Arts Centre

Thursday, June 13 at 7:30 pm Members $35 / Public $40 Your ticket includes a copy of Mrs. Everything, author talk, Q&A, and book signing! Exclusive Long Island appearance -- Your ticket includes a copy of Mrs. Everything, author talk, Q&A and book signing! A #1 New York Times bestselling author, JENNIFER WEINER‘s books have spent over five years on the New York Times bestseller list with over 11 million copies in print in 36 countries. Meet the author of the novels Good in Bed (2001); In Her Shoes (2002), which was turned into a major motion picture starring Cameron Diaz, Toni Collette and Shirley MacLaine; Little Earthquakes (2004); Goodnight Nobody (2005) and many others. In a juicy page-turner, infused with engaging characters, Mrs. Everything is an exploration of women’s rights, sexual freedom, and the changing landscape of American politics. The novel ultimately asks if women today are any freer or more fulfilled than those of their mothers’ and grandmothers’ generations, and speaks to the paradigm-shifting power of women who tell the truth about their lives. NPR’s Fresh Air called SUSAN ISAACS “Jane Austen with a schmear.” She is the bestselling author of fourteen novels, including Compromising Positions, Shining Through, After All These Years, and As Husbands Go. Her most recent, Takes One to Know One, which takes place on Long Island, is the first of a new series and will be published this October. Susan will be moderating the conversation with Jennifer Weiner!
