Area Author Affair: Marcelle Soviero – An Iridescent Life
Monday, Nov. 12, 6 – 7 p.m.
At a time when American mothers are being shunned for doing everything wrong, the essays in An Iridescent Life celebrate the perfectly imperfect lives of an everyday mom/step-mom trying to raise kids without a guaranteed guidebook and with rules that seem to keep changing at every step along the way. Marcelle Soviero’s award-winning essays have been published in numerous publications and radio programs including The New York Times, Salon.com, Eating Well, and featured on The Story on National Public Radio. This August she became the Editor-in-Chief of Brain, Child: The Magazine for Thinking Mothers. Marcelle has an MFA in English/Poetry from New York University and a BA in Creative Studies from Hofstra University. She lives in Wilton with her husband and five children. Books will be available for purchase and signing. Light refreshments are served at Area Author Affairs, held to celebrate our local authors. Registration encouraged.
