The Heart Lives On: Memoirs

Fri. March 23, 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM


100 5th Street NE, Charlottesville, VA 22902

Authors Sharon Harrigan (Playing with Dynamite), Panthea Reid (Body and Soul), and Mike Smith (And There was Evening And There Was Morning) discuss their memoirs, each dealing with aspects of grief, love, and resilience.

“Reid vividly depicts both her husband’s sickness and her own feelings of loss and guilt in this memoir. The author also points out that the best grief memoirs “provide both a powerful feel of the person lost and sharp insight into the writer herself.” Her own book passes that test with flying colors. —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
