Monday, August 10 - Bookmarks is excited to be selling books for a special Readings on Roslyn event with David Payne. His new memoir, Barefoot to Avalon, is a true story of survival in the face of adversity. In 2000, while moving his household from Vermont to North Carolina, author David Payne watched from his rearview mirror as his younger brother, George A., driving behind him in a two-man convoy of rental trucks, lost control of his vehicle, fishtailed and flipped over in the road. David's life hit a downward spiral. From a cocktail hour indulgence, his drinking became a full-blown addiction. His career entered a standstill. His marriage disintegrated. He found himself haunted not only by George's death, but also by his brother's manic depression, a condition that overlaid a dark family history of mental illness, alcoholism and suicide, an inherited past that now threatened David's and his children's futures. The only way out, he found, was to write about his brother. This event is free and open to the public. 7pm at the Byrum Welcome Center on the campus of Wake Forest University.
