Anna Quindlen: Every Last One
All Library locations are closed today, Monday, September 1, in observance of Labor Day.
Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist and bestselling author Anna Quindlen discusses her book, Every Last One, an unforgettable portrait of a mother, a father, a family, and the explosive, violent consequences of what seem like inconsequential actions.
Mary Beth Latham is first and foremost a mother, whose three teenaged children come first, before her career as a landscape gardener, or even her life as the wife of a doctor. Caring for her family and preserving their everyday life is paramount. When one of her sons, Max, becomes depressed, Mary Beth focuses on him and is blindsided by a shocking act of violence.
Quindlen's presentation is co-sponsored by Rainy Day Books. The book will be available for sale.
