Event Details

“My name is Barb, and I died – against my wishes – on September 14, 2001.” Join author Susan Douglass, as she discusses Barb's Story, a fictional memoir, about a woman who is given the chance to live the life she never had: to fall in love, weather difficulties of family and friends, and most of all, discover what really matters in life.

Coping with her sister Barb’s untimely death at the age of 48, the author, Susan Upton Douglass, wrote this story imagining the life Barb might have led, showcasing a one-of-a-kind heroine as she navigates an imaginary life with grace and humor.

SUSAN UPTON DOUGLASS practiced law for over 39 years, spending most of her career at a top New York City law firm specializing in trademark and copyright law. Susan teaches yoga daily, takes her Australian Shepherd dogs for pet therapy visits at a local hospital, and fields calls on a domestic violence/elder abuse hotline. She volunteers at a civic organization, and chairs a downtown revitalization committee. Barb’s Story is Susan’s debut novel; she is now writing her second novel. Susan lives in New York with her husband and dogs.
