Author Debby Mayer will read from her memoir, "Riptides & Solaces Unforeseen," at 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 21, at the New Lebanon Library, 550 State Route 20.
The reading will be followed by a question and answer session and discussion, after which Mayer will sign copies of her books.
Part mystery, part love story, part report from the medical front in the United States today, "Riptides" relates the fast-onset brain cancer that ripped through a strong, healthy man and led to his death four months later at the age of 56.
Mayer is also the author of "Sisters: A Novel." She lives in Hudson.
All are welcome to this free event. Information: (518) 794-8844.
