Event description

Come hear renown Philadelphia author Sarah Sawyers-Lovett read from her memoir Everybody Else’s Girl. Reading followed by an author signing (you can bring your own copy if you have one, and copies will be available for purchase if you don’t have one yet).

Everybody Else’s Girl

Set in Tazewell, Virginia, a town whose wholesome storefronts and country charm hide an undercurrent of poverty and lawlessness, Everybody Else’s Girl tells the story of growing up poor amid unspeakable violence. Broken-down trailer parks and gritty classrooms provide the background for this story of a girl searching for her voice.
