Did You Ever Have a Family: Monday, June 19 • 6:00 pm
Hours before a wedding, a fire kills the bride, the groom, her father, and her mother’s boyfriend. The only survivor is the bride’s mother, June. After losing not just everyone she loves, but her house, her clothes, and her passport as well, June leaves her Connecticut hometown and drives to a motel in the Pacific Northwest, where she stays for months. In this sad yet deeply inspiring debut novel, agent/memoirist Bill Clegg shows how people make bearable what is unbearable, offering consolation in small but meaningful gestures.
Meets in the Armstrong Conference Room.
