Ever since it was published in hardcover, I have been so intrigued by Kelly Corrigan's memoir, The Middle Place. In the book, which has gone on to become a word-of-mouth sensation and a New York Times bestseller, Corrigan writes about caring for her ill father while dealing with her own cancer as a mother. As she puts it on her website, she explores "being a parent and a child at the same time, about the special double-vision you get when you have one foot standing in each place. It is about the family you make and the family you came from, and locating, navigating and finally celebrating the place where they meet."
I think there are very few of us who didn't have her extremely compelling video sent to us at the end of the year. And I dare anyone to watch it and emerge with dry eyes. I'm thrilled that Kelly will be joining me on Wednesday, May 27th at 7 pm to discuss The Middle Place with me and with all of you!
The first 15 people who comment that they'd like to participate in the show on the 27th will receive a free copy of the book. You can read an excerpt here, and watch the video with Corrigan below. Set your reminder for the show here.
