In Conversation with Judy Goldman @ M.Judson Booksellers
Feb 25 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Join us for an evening In Conversation With Judy Goldman as we discuss her newest book, Together: A Memoir of a Marriage and a Medical Mishap.

Reminiscent of Dani Shapiro’s Hourglass, memoirist Judy Goldman paints a portrait of a relationship tested and lives changed in an instant in Together. Faced with an unknown future when her husband of 40 years becomes paralyzed from the waist down after a botched medical procedure, Judy must take on the role her husband had always occupied – that of the provider – and as she tries to envision her family’s future, she discovers a new, more resilient version of herself.

Judy is the author of two award-winning poetry collections and two novels – this is her second memoir. Her work has appeared in Real Simple, The Washington Post, and many literary journals.

Come join the conversation with Judy on Monday, February 25 at 7 pm.
