Meet The Author: "Bittersweet Memories" with Barbara Long

On the evening of Monday April 20th, the Livingston Public Library will present a Meet The Author program with former Livingston resident and library employee Barbara H Long, who has written a memoir entitled “Bittersweet Memories: the life story of an immigrant daughter”

Barbara’s story is that of a young daughter of a German scientist (called to work for the US government after WWII) who is transplanted to America, and her new life is fraught with painful circumstances. Loneliness, divorce, and mental illness impact her formative years. From the devastation of war to the challenge of life in a new country, she encounters both the best and worst of human nature, bittersweet. Through it all, she comes to realize that everyone struggles, but can choose their own path. She keeps going in the belief that she'll become stronger and wiser. She survives and eventually thrives.
Barbara hopes that in her story, others may find encouragement and support to cope through difficult times.

Says Barbara, “I look forward to sharing insights about my story, which is a story of survival and hope, and also about the process of writing a memoir.”

The book is attracting many positive reviews, and copies will be available for purchase after her presentation. Barbara can be found on Facebook at Bittersweet Memories and also at Bittersweetmemories.net.
