Beth M. Howard"If only there was a prosthetic for grief."

Beth Howard serves up some pieces of her life in the KRUU studio Wednesday night.   She'll read from and discuss her new book, Making Piece-A Memoir of Love, Loss and Pie.

Beth's writing style is very direct, sometimes raw, and emotionally grabbing.  It's a riveting read of her intimate journey springing from a short, life-changing, telephone call. The call was from a medical examiner who told her, "Your husband is deceased."  This stark sentence  delivered in a "serious, official, no emotion, detached" manner leads her on a rollercoaster ride of self-discovery.
