Meet Local Author Elizabeth Caissie

Elizabeth Caissie will talk about her recently published memoir, The Place of a Father. The memoir spans 45 years as it follows the journey of a woman, separated from her father and her country at a very young age. Taken from Massachusetts to France as a toddler, she will migrate back to the place she calls home, the United States, at the age of twenty-one. Despite being absent, her father influences not only the person she becomes, but also many of her life choices. As he appears in and disappears from her life, the author struggles to find a balance between acceptance and her yearning for a father’s love. Only a twist of fate will reward her faith in destiny, when she finally reunites with her long-lost father. Together, they embark on a journey of healing and discovery that will take them to the beautiful shores of Baja, Mexico. Ms. Caissie studied philosophy and literature in France, before moving to New York City in 1987. She worked as a commercial photographer for five years and, after moving to New Jersey, she worked as a photo stylist for 20 years. Ms. Caissie will have copies of her book available for purchase and for signing. The program is sponsored by the Cranford Public Library. Admission is free and all are welcome.
