Stop by the store on Wednesday, November 14th at 7pm to hear Bell ImageChevigny reading Howard Waskow’s book Homeward Bound.

In Howard Waskow’s Homeward Bound, readers are accompanied by a wise guide on a journey to understand more deeply the sources of disappointment in their family relationships and to discover potential paths to greater satisfaction in the family and in intimate relationships more generally. Drawing on his many years of experience as a therapist and as a teacher of literature, and reflecting deeply on his own family relationships, Waskow creates a remarkable work. He brilliantly weaves together the perceptiveness, compassion and deep understanding of the therapist, the keen analytical ability of the literary scholar, and the insight of someone with an unusual ability to listen to the “other” in his own family relationships.
Bell Chevigny will be reading from this work. She is the author of The Woman and the Myth: Margaret Fuller’s Life and Writings and Chloe and Olivia. Chevigny is the Professor Emerita of Literature at Purchase College, SUNY.
