‘Call me Eve. It’s the name I call myself when I think back to that time when I was a young wife – so very young, so very hungry. I picked the fruit and ate and drank until I was drunk with freedom and covered injuice and guilt.’
At the Kill Your Darlings First Book Club event in June, former Killings columnist Rochelle Siemienowicz will discuss her frank, compelling and beautifully written debut memoir, Fallen: A Memoir About Sex, Religion and Marrying Too Young.
Read Rochelle’s piece for Killings on writing Fallen, ‘A Bride Stripped Bare: A writer gets naked on the path from novel to memoir’.
Rochelle will be in conversation with KYD’s Online Editor Veronica Sullivan, followed by audience Q&A and book signing. Drinks are provided. You can enjoy the First Book Club even if you haven’t yet read the book – but you’ll definitely want to afterwards!
The First Book Club is free, but please RSVP to [email protected] to confirm your place.
