White Flag: A Conversation with Author Judy L. Mandel

Wed, December 7 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EST

Raising the white flag is a universal symbol of surrender, a symbol of the hope that our vulnerability will be shielded from further harm and we can finally lay down our burden. What separates those who summon the inner strength to ask for help from those who can never unfurl their banner? These are questions that haunt Judy L. Mandel in her new book, White Flag, a searingly honest memoir of loss and addition. White Flag is the further exploration of the author's family, so movingly portrayed in her previous New York Times bestselling memoir, Replacement Child.

Author Judy L. Mandel will be in conversation about her new book, in-person at the library.
