PageTurners Discuss "The Memory of Running"

Tuesday, Oct 17, 2017 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Join PageTurners for a discussion of The Memory of Running by Ron McLarty. By all accounts, especially his own, Smithson "Smithy" Ide is a loser. An overweight, friendless, chain-smoking, forty-three-year-old drunk, Smithy’s life becomes completely unhinged when he loses his parents and long-lost sister within the span of one week. Rolling down the driveway of his parents’ house in Rhode Island on his old Raleigh bicycle to escape his grief, the emotionally bereft Smithy embarks on an epic, hilarious, luminous, and extraordinary journey of discovery and redemption.
