Charlotte resident and author, Judy Goldman, will read from and discuss her new memoir, Losing My Sister on Saturday, October 20th at 1 p.m. at City Lights Bookstore. Losing My Sister tells of Goldman’s relationship with her sister, the struggles they face, either apart or united. Whether it is long hidden family secrets, cancer or the failing health of their parents the two sisters manage to bridge the distance between them and reforge a relationship that had been strong since childhood. "Family stories grow to be bigger than the experiences themselves," writes Judy Goldman in her memoir, Losing My Sister. "They become home to us, tell us who we are, who we want to be. Over the years, they take on more and more embellishments and adornments until they eclipse the actual memory. They become our past--just as a snapshot will, at first, enhance a memory, then replace it." For more information please call City Lights Bookstore at 828-586-9499.
