But here’s a chance to share up close in Elizabeth’s dramatic journey as she reads from her memoir, Saving Graces: Finding Solace and Strength from Friends and Strangers. It’s about belonging to the peple who belong to youin grief and in triumph. It’s now soft cover with a new chapter since her diagnosis with incurable cancer. Seating is limited, but Edwards is known for signing everyone’s book. Starts at 7:30 pm. Bob Geary
