Wilton Library Author Talk: Rebecca Hendrickson — Lessons from the Mountain

February 7 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Author and Wilton resident Rebecca Hendrickson will visit Wilton Library to talk about her debut novel, Lessons from the Mountain, which exposes the challenges in the education and mental health systems.

Ever since the family reunion in the Adirondack Mountains two years ago, nothing has been the same. Annie, the middle sister is experiencing an acute episode of postpartum depression. The youngest sister, Cade, has moved south to work at a school that resembles a trailer park, determined to succeed on her own adventure. Rye is a former teacher of the year, working in a wealthy, litigious school district who is always put together and organized until her father begins to deteriorate. Winnie’s husband, Don, has become suddenly ill, both mentally and physically, and no doctor can explain it. The family must watch Don’s health decline while dealing with struggles of their own. Readers will also find themselves rooting for each character as they search for answers.

Hendrickson is a special education teacher at an alternative high school in Fairfield County. She previously published The Four Trimesters: Poems Highlighting the Joys of Motherhood. She and her husband and two children live in Wilton.

Elm Street Books will be selling copies after the talk. A portion of the proceeds goes to Wilton Library.

The media sponsor of the library author talks is GOOD Morning Wilton.

Registration is required. To register and for more information, visit Wilton Library online, or contact the library’s reference librarians at 203.762.6350 or via email.
