Memoirist Amy Boesky on "What We Have"

Amy BoeskyMonica and Caroline welcome Boston College English professor Amy Boesky to Writers' Voices to discuss her memoir of new motherhood and the deep connections of sisters who grew up in the shadow of a family legacy of early death from cancer. This emotionally satisfying memoir shows us what it means to live in the moment when you live with the knowledge that your moments may be all too few. "What We Have" was published by Penguin Books.  Boesky was also one of the principal ghostwriters for the popular young adult series "Sweet Valley High."

Join us once again for an intimate conversation all about writing with a wonderful author.
