Author Michele Weldon: "Escape Points: A Memoir"

Sunday, September 20, 2015 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm

Join Michele Weldon for the launch of her newest book, Escape Points: A Memoir. Deftly lacing heartbreak with humor and insight, Weldon provides a potent antidote to the crazy, harried single-mom stereotype. With the help of family, friends, and the local high school wrestling coach, Weldon relates the challenges and triumphs of the years she spent raising three growing sons alone in the face of cancer, with an ambitious career, and in the shadow of her ex-husband.
