Join us at the Josephine County Library, Ben R. Bones room, Grants Pass. May 11th, 1:00 – 2:30 pm for author and filmmaker Victoria Costello’s talk about two parallel journeys she’s taken as a writer over the last decade: first, the writing of both a memoir and a novel inspired by the same personal story of ancestral trauma, her own, and then finding a path to publish both books.
