Susan Swicegood Boswell, Author Event

The Long Way Home is a collection of short stories and essays, in which North Carolina native Susan Swicegood Boswell has arrived at mid-age, burned out, bored and more than a little harried; her sense of humor and passion for adventure, however, are still intact. Whether she is chasing a runaway pound cake through the parking lot of the Holiday Inn, competing as a beauty queen on the livestock stage at the Davidson County Agricultural Fair, counseling her best friend through divorce, traveling the world, or encouraging her newly-retired husband in his new job at the local funeral home, Boswell's reflections give depth, humor, and insight into our collective journeys. Alternately poignant and hilarious, Boswell's memoir is as unpredictable as life itself.
