Star Line Books hosts an afternoon of nonfiction on Saturday
If you haven’t had a chance to stop in to the new Star Line Books, this Saturday might be just the day. Two regional women authors will be reading from their newest nonfiction works and signing.
Sarah Einstein is the author of Mot: A Memoir, which tells the story of her meeting with Mot, “a homeless veteran who lives a life dictated by frightening delusion. She is drawn to the brilliant ways he has found to lead his own difficult life; traveling to Romania to get his teeth fixed because the United States doesn’t offer dental care to the indigent, teaching himself to use computers in public libraries, and even taking university classes while living out of doors. Mot: A Memoir is the story of their unlikely friendship and explores what we can, and cannot, do for a person we love.”
Jessica Handler’s Invisible Sisters “is Handler’s powerfully told story of coming of age—as the daughter of progressive Jewish parents who move south to participate in the social justice movement of the 1960s; as a healthy sister living in the shadow of her siblings’ illness; and as a young woman struggling to step out of the shadow of her sisters’ deaths, to find and redefine herself anew.”
Authors Sarah Einstein and Jessica Handler
