Maureen Stanton: “Body Leaping Backward: Memoir of a Delinquent Girlhood”

October 7 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Body Leaping Backward was a “Best New Books” pick in People Magazine and has received favorable reviews from Kirkus, BookPage, The Boston Globe, Shelf Awareness, and BookRiot. Maureen Stanton lives in Georgetown and teaches at UMass Lowell one day a week.

“Written with sensual, poetic, and evocative prose, this remarkable memoir is an honest and naked exploration of what it means to live as a young woman in the quiet wreckage of a broken home, in a town whose central industry is punishing criminals, in a time in our history when social norms were shifting and no one seemed to be in charge, and it was so very easy to fall perilously between the cracks. A deeply moving, timely, and important memoir.”    ~ Andre Dubus III, author of  Townie and Gone So Long
