Judy Goldman presents Together: A Memoir of a Medical Mishap
February 23 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
A routine procedure left novelist, memoirist, and poet Judy Goldman’s husband paralyzed. Together is her unforgettable account of the struggle to regain their “normal” life and a nuanced portrait of a marriage tested, seeking solutions to help him win back his independence. Along the way, Goldman flashes back to her memories of their life together. As she tries envision her family’s future, she discovers a new, more resilient version of herself. Together is a story of the life we imagine versus the life we lead–an elegant and empathetic meditation on partnership, aging, and, of course, love.
Judy Goldman is the author of two award-winning poetry collections and two novels, Early Leaving and The Slow Way Back, which was a finalist for SIBA’s Novel of the Year and winner of the Sir Walter Raleigh Fiction Award and the Mary Ruffin Poole Award for First Fiction.
