Book Group Mixer featuring Melissa Cistaro

Thursday, July 16, 2015 - 7:00pm
Special guest at this Book Group Mixer! Melissa Cistaro, Book Passage event coordinator and author, will discuss her new memoir, Pieces of My Mother.
Haunting yet ultimately uplifting, Pieces of My Mother chronicles Cistaro's quest to discover what drives a mother to walk away from the children she loves. Alternating between Melissa's tumultuous coming-of-age and her mother's final days, this captivating memoir reveals how our parents' choices impact our own and how we can survive those to forge our own paths.

"Told in vivid scenes and through the texts of letters her mother never sent, Cistaro chronicles a journey that goes way past forgiveness to true understanding."
--Will Schwable, bestselling author of The End Of Your Life Book Club
