Gloria Norris, the author of the recently-published KooKooLand: A Memoir, will speak about her book and the writing of it on Wednesday, October 18, at 7 PM at the Bachelder Library, 12 Chase Hill Road, in East Andover.
This is the story of a smart, sassy girl growing up in the working class housing projects of Manchester, New Hampshire, during the 1960s and 70s, the powerful story of how one girl survives a repressive, violent environment. As one reviewer says, “Gloria Norris’s KooKooLand is a memoir written on the edge of a knife blade. Chilling, intensely moving, and darkly funny, it cuts to the heart and soul of a troubled American family, and announces the arrival of a startlingly original voice.”
Copies of KooKooLand will be available for purchase and signing by the author at the event.
