When: Thu., Feb. 23, 7 p.m. 2012
Rachel Simon will be visiting Park Road Books to sign her new novel “Story of Beautiful Girl.” Lynnie, a young white woman with a developmental disability, and Homan, an African American deaf man, are locked away in an institution. Deeply in love, they escape, and find refuge in the farmhouse of Martha. But the couple is not alone-Lynnie has just given birth to a baby girl. And so begins the 40-year journey-lives divided by seemingly insurmountable obstacles, yet drawn together by extraordinary love. As always, Park Road Books events are free and open to the public.
