Towne Center Books and the Firehouse Arts Center bring you an evening of conversation with authors Susan Burton and Ethel Rohan.
Susan Burton is the author of Becoming Ms. Burton: From Prison to Recovery to Leading the Fight for IncarceratedWomen. Susan tells her story of coming in and out of the prison system for 20 years before gaining freedom and sobriety in 1997. She has made it her life's work to help other women going through similar struggles to what she experienced.
Ethel Rohan is the author of The Weight of Him. Born and raised in Ireland and now living in San Francisco, Ethel sets her novel against a backdrop of rural contemporary Ireland. A novel about loss, grief and what happens "when we take the stand of our lives."
