Local Author Reads Book At NAPL
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Local Author Maureen Callahan Smith will read from "Grace Street: A Sister's Memoir of Grief & Gratitude" Wednesday, June 29, 6 pm at the North Adams Public Library.
In "Grace Street: A Sister's Memoir of Grief & Gratitude," licensed social worker Maureen Callahan Smith writes about accompanying her younger sister Kathy through a late-stage cancer diagnosis.
According to a press release, Grace Street is the story of two close sisters, "Irish twins," who are in the midst of their very happy forties when the worst thing happens: a Stage IV cancer diagnosis. The sisters and their family mobilize to face down Kathy's illness together.
"Grace Street: A Sister's Memoir of Grief & Gratitude" is available in paperback wherever you buy your books, and a Kindle ebook is available on Amazon.
A selection from the book was singled out to win the Second Career Author award at the Cape Cod Writers Conference, and was read aloud to the conference's plenary session. Another selection was chosen by one of the specialists at Dana Farber Cancer Center to be read and used for her palliative care teaching rounds.
