Book Launch: Charlotte R. Mendel

Book LaunchOn Saturday October 19, 2013 between 11:00 am and 12:00 pm, Fernwood Publishing will launch Charlotte R. Mendel’s first novel, Turn Us Again, at the Elmsdale Public Library, Elmsdale, Nova Scotia.

Guests will be treated to a reading by the author, snacks and drinks. Fernwood representatives will be on hand in the lobby for anyone who wishes to purchase a signed copy of Turn Us Again.

This is Charlotte’s first book. Her writing has appeared in City Lights, the Tel Aviv supplement of The Jerusalem Post, The Breastfeeding Diaries, The Nashwaak Review, The Healing Touch of Horses and several other anthologies. She currently lives in Enfield, NS, with her family.

Summary: Called to his dying father’s bedside, Gabriel Golden’s life is turned upside down after receiving his mother’s journal. The journal chronicles his mother’s life in post-war Britain, her genteel upbringing and her eventual marriage to Gabriel’s father, a complicated man raised in an aggressive, Jewish family who drinks to escape financial worries. Gabriel is shocked as the novel reveals dark secrets about his parents’ relationship, shaking Gabriel’s preconceptions about his father — and himself.

Based on a true story and winner of the H.R. Percy Novel Prize and the Beacon Award for Social Justice, Turn Us Again is a powerful exploration of the dynamics within family relationships, enticing the reader to embark on a journey towards a more complex understanding of the issue of abuse.
