Joyce Maynard discusses her moving new memoir "The Best of Us"
Maynard returns to Montclair Library to discuss and sign copies of her new memoir, The Best of Us, her story about discovering her true partner, Jim Barringer (a Montclair resident), in mid-life, only to lose him to a battle with cancer.
According to Joyce Carol Oates, “The Best of Us is so candid, so deeply moving, so powerful...a testament to human resilience. Joyce Maynard is unfathomably heroic.”
Copies of her work will be sold courtesy of A Great Good Place for Books..
