The Scoville Memorial Library and Noble Horizons are cosponsoring a program by local resident Tara Kelly. Sunday September 14, 2014 at 4:00 p.m. Writing about love, loss, death and dying is taking on big and emotional subjects. These tend to be uncomfortable topics yet ones we have all faced, and will continue to face in our lives personally, in our community and in the world. These topics are massive in scope, weighty in emotion, and elusive to define. She explores this particular niche in the nonfiction writing of the grief memoir partly reflective of her own experience. Kelly is writing a memoir about her ex-husband, a larger than life character and local restaurateur, who after being diagnosed with liver cancer, returned to her home to spend his last four days with her and their children. She considers the works of Joan Didion, Donald Hall, C.S. Lewis, Julian Barnes, Jamaica Kincaid, and others. Tara Kelly lives in Lakeville, Connecticut. She recently earned her MFA in Literature at Bennington College.
