We are happy to announce that author Regina Calcaterra will be coming to Book Club Girl on Air! Join us at 5 PM on Thursday, September 19 to hear Regina chatting about her memoir, Etched in Sand, which went on sale this month. If you haven't picked it up yet, you can read an excerpt here!
In this story of perseverance in the face of adversity, Regina Calcaterra recounts her childhood in foster care and on the streets—and how she and her savvy crew of homeless siblings managed to survive years of homelessness, abandonment, and abuse.
Regina Calcaterra's emotionally powerful memoir reveals how she endured a series of foster homes and intermittent homelessness in the shadow of the Hamptons, and how she rose above her past while fighting to keep her brother and three sisters together.
Beautifully written and heartbreakingly honest, Etched in Sand is an unforgettable reminder that regardless of social status, the American dream is still within reach for those who have the desire and the determination to succeed.
We have 10 copies of Etched in Sand to give to 10 people who comment that they can participate in our show on Thursday, September 19 at 5 pm EST. We'll pick 10 random commenters from anyone who posts by 11:59pm Friday, August 23rd.
