Barbara Williams Tour

February 5, 2016 12:58pm


Don’t miss actress and author Barbara Williams
on tour with her new memoir
The Hope in Leaving 

On the day she is leaving town to escape her troubled family and  to start over at twenty-four–she finds a note on her mother’s  door. Her brother has shot himself. In stories that face reality so  squarely they express what usually goes unsaid—from  exhilaration to despair—Barbara Williams remembers her  childhood leading up to this moment. Her father is a logger,  nomad, and born dreamer. Her mother has too many kids and  never enough money to support or protect them. The family  keeps on the move, shedding a grand total of twenty-seven  homes.
