PASCO LECTURE SERIES - 2015

Laura Munson : This is Not the Story You Think...Sunday, July 19 at 2:00 p.m.

By the time Laura Munson turned 40, her life was not how she had thought it would turn out. Career success had edluded her; she and her husband, once the golden couple, weren't so golden; and her beloved father was no longer around. Poignant, wise, and often exceedingly funny, this is the moment-by-moment memoir of a woman who decided to let go--in the midst of the emotional equivalent of a Category 5 hurricane.

Please help us welcome Laura all the way from Montana to Maine to hear about her extraordinary journey. Book signing and Reception to Follow.
