Book Reading and Signing ~ Patricia Walsh Chadwick
Book reading and signing for Patricia Walsh Chadwick’s book Little Sister: A Memoir.
Imagine an eighteen-year-old American girl who has never read a newspaper, watched television, or made a phone call, an eighteen-year-old-girl who has never danced--and this in the 1960s.
Patricia Walsh Chadwick is that child, and LIttle Sister is her account of growing up at St. Benedict's Center in Still River.
When she leaves the Center, she faces the world alone, without skills, family, or money but empowered with faith and fierce determination to succeed on her own, which she does, rising eventually to the upper echelons of the world of finance and investing.
A tale of resilience and grace, Little Sister chronicles a surreal childhood and does so without rancor or self-pity.
