Program Description

Event Details

A forty-year love story for readers who long to know that love can endure, this memoir doesn't shy away from the realities of life. But the relationship between these two lovers, tested by separations, alcoholism, and to its ultimate limits by pancreatic cancer, proves that love - and a sense of humor - can conquer anything, even death. The author grabs our hand and takes us with her on a journey through love and other emotional worlds—the parts of ourselves we see when we take the time to be with ourselves.

Gabi Coatsworth was born in Britain, but has spent most of her life trying to figure out how America works by living here. So, if you find a British flavor in her books, don’t be surprised. She’s an award-winning writer, who’s had short stories and essays published in journals and anthologies, and her memoir, Love’s Journey Home, was published in May 2022 by Atmosphere Press. She is active in the Connecticut writing community and runs several groups for writers, including a monthly open mic Meetup, a monthly Writers Rendezvous, and a weekly write-in.

If she’s not writing or traveling, she’ll be in her flower garden, wondering whether to weed, or relaxing with a book. Find out more about her here.
