A year ago yesterday, the first EDIWTB book club read The Middle Place by Kelly Corrigan, a memoir of the author’s bout with breast cancer. The “middle place” refers to those middle years when you’re both a parent and a child. I enjoyed the book a lot and often wonder how Corrigan (and her very memorable father) are doing. Here is a link to the book club discussion.
Kelly Corrigan emailed me the following video this week, which her publisher put together on the occasion of the book’s paperback release. It’s an ode to friendship, to the ways in which our friends get us through the difficult periods of life. I enjoyed it and thought it was worth sharing here.
