Betsy Lerner launches her new book The Bridge Ladies
May 4, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
After a lifetime defining herself in contrast to her mother’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” generation, Lerner finds herself back in her childhood home, not five miles from the mother she spent decades avoiding. When Roz needs help after surgery, it falls to Betsy to take care of her. Tentatively at first, Betsy becomes a regular at her mother’s Monday Bridge club. Through her friendships with the ladies, she is finally able to face years of misunderstandings and family tragedy, the Bridge table becoming the common ground she and Roz never had.
Betsy Lerner will be in conversation with Julie Klam, author of You Had Me at Woof.
