Local author Margaret Singleton will be here on Saturday, February 8 from 12:00 to 2:00pm to sign copies of her memoir The Box in the Closet: My Journey to Claim Who I Am.
From the jacket:
“This powerful and unusual story contrasts the Bicknells, a wealthy and influential family in Rosedale, Toronto, Ontario, into which I was born out of wedlock, with a farm couple near Brockville, Ontario, who adopted me in 1935. At the age of sixteen I began to feel unsettled and lost. Eighteen years later I finally acted on that feeling and began the search for my lost parents.
Using documents I found in a box in the closet of my adoptive mother after her death, I have retrieved the moment when a sleek limousine emerged from the dust of a gravel road delivering me to my new home.
The memoir is a story of loss and recovery but it is also a story of love, strength and redemption.”
We look forward to seeing you all here for this great event!
