Adelaide Books is proud to inform you that our most respect author, Deborah Nedelman will be hosting an event at Village Books!
What We Take for Truth is the story of a young woman who finds her strength when the world around her crumbles. It is a timely tale about shifting loyalties and the painful choices we are forced to make in order to preserve what we value most. At its height, the world of logging in the Pacific Northwest, was both brutal and beautiful. When the conservation movement sent protestors into the woods and the government began to place the needs of a small, shy bird above those of families who had lived for generations off the harvest of those woods, the conflicts that erupted were fierce and heartbreaking. What We Take for Truth tells a story that both defends a way of life that is dying and celebrates a landscape that is being lost.
Deborah Nedelman’s writing career began in 2nd grade. By the time she left home for college she had a body of work written on envelope backs and inside homemade journals. All of that early work was destroyed in a train fire, and her career as an author was briefly derailed. College, marriage, parenthood, and a 30-year career as a clinical psychologist were all delaying tactics. Two non-fiction books, short stories, pieces of flash fiction and poetry, and a novel later, she is enjoying leading writing groups and helping others find their own literary voices. She is a certified Amherst Writers and Artists group leader.
The entry is free to everyone who would like to be part of Ms. Nedelman reading of her latest publication What We Take for Truth.
