Thursday 24th May, 6pm – 8pm.
Join a Salon of emerging writers with Jessie Cole for the launch of “Staying: A Memoir” at Avid Reader Bookshop.
As children, Jessie Cole and her brother Jake ran wild, free to roam their rainforest home as they pleased. They had each other, parents who adored them, and two mysterious, beautiful, clever half-sisters, Billie and Zoe, who came to visit every holidays. But when Jessie was on the cusp of adolescence, tragedy struck, and her happy, loving family fell apart.
This heartbreaking memoir asks what happens to those who are left behind when someone takes their own life. It’s about the importance of home, family and forgiveness—and finding peace in a place of pain.
By the critically acclaimed author of “Darkness on the Edge of Town” and “Deeper Water”.
