Book Signing: Tuesday, December 2, 7:00-8:00 p.m. Local author Sharon Marchisello presents her new novel, "Going Home." Michelle DePalma expected to jet into Two Wells, Texas, check on her elderly mother, and hurry back to her orderly life in Atlanta. Instead, she finds her mother, Lola Hanson, hovered over the bludgeoned body of her caregiver, Brittany Landers. Lola's memory loss has recently accelerated, and the family suspects Alzheimer's. Now Lola can't tell anyone what happened to Brittany. "Going Home," a fictional story, was inspired by the author's mother's battle with Alzheimer's, and explores the challenge of solving a murder mystery when a potential witness cannot rely on her memory. The story, written to appeal to both mystery lovers and readers of mainstream fiction, touches on increasingly common issues such as elder abuse and end-of-life decisions. Copies of "Going Home" available for sale at this FREE event. Proceeds of books sold will benefit the Friends of the Fayette County Public Library and the Fayette County Humane Society.
