"Losing My Sister: A Memoir"

I talked with Judy Goldman about her book Losing My Sister: A Memoir.  Judy will be at B’nai Israel Synagogue tonight at 7:00 to give a free reading.  She paint a vivid picture of growing up in South Carolina in a close-knit family, and how she and her older sister Brenda experienced three rifts in their relationship.  The book is beautifully written; I highly recommend it.
