Barbara Scoblic Author Signing

October 29, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

On October 29th at 7:00, Barbara Scoblic will be at the store signing her new memoir, Lost Without the River. The youngest of seven, Barbara Scoblic wrestles against the expectations of her parents, the strictures of the church, and the limits of a time dominated by men as she grows up in a family struggling against Depression-era hardship and personal tragedy to carve out a small farm in rural South Dakota. Eager for adventure, she leaves–first for the Peace Corps and ultimately for the alien geography of Manhattan’s Upper East Side–but she never truly escapes. An elegantly wrought memoir of resilience, courage, and reinvention–and a portrait of nature at its most beautiful and demanding–Lost Without the River demonstrates the emotional power that even the smallest place can exert, and the gravitational pull that calls a person back home.
