Bestselling novelist Elizabeth Hay brings her latest work to Sudbury Thursday, May 23 at the 24th annual Celebrate Women event in support of local women’s organizations.
The event was originally supposed to be held May 1, but had to be rescheduled due to inclement weather.
According to Hay’s publisher, in “All Things Consoled” she has written a poignant, complex, and hugely resonant memoir about the shift she experienced between being her parents’ daughter to their guardian and caregiver.
With candour and irresistible wit Hay offers insight into the complexities of a family’s dynamics to reach a deep understanding of her parents.
She explores sibling rivalries and miscommunications, as well as genuine love and devotion.
