Join Janet Calcaterra for a reading of The Burden of Memories and a signing! This event has been rescheduled from October.

About the book:

A powerful family drama about fractured lives, secrets, addiction and ultimate reinvention.

In 1995, sisters Adrienne and Cass unravel the mystery behind their father, Dr. Alexander Muir, a doctor during World War 11’s Italian Campaign and later a psychiatrist. As children they barely recall the sudden death of their father, but, through a series of family letters, they learn, despite their mother’s best efforts, that their father suffered from PTSD due to war time experiences and died by his own hand. While their mother is ashamed of her late husband’s downfall, the sisters find learning about their father cathartic, inspiring them to move forward with their lives.
