Dr. Howard Schwartz, a psychiatrist and long time Maplewood resident, will read at Words Bookstore from his new book, HIDE AND SEEK/HIDDEN AND FOUND—IN SEARCH OF A BALANCED LIFE: Psychoanalytic Memoirs, Stories And Essays, a combination of entertaining stories about the author’s own life with fanciful tales about his grandchildren, his childhood, and family, all interwoven with a deep and sincere self-analysis, and told in the author’s very personal and homespun style. 

The reading is from 12:30 p.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday, October 22 at Words Bookstore (179 Maplewood Ave.) in Maplewood.
