On Thursday, November 20th, 2008, at 7pm, local author Erika Kirtoglou will be signing her memoir, I'm Going to Dance: A Memoir About Traumatic Brain Injury.
In August of 1993, Kirtoglou was involved in a head-on car collision that left her in a coma. I'm Going to Dance is her story of the crash and its aftermath, which still affects her today as she lives with post-traumatic brain injury. It is an honest look at her journey through recovery.
Her website, www.survivingdancer.org, includes the following quote from Liz Tuccillo, author of He’s Just Not That Into You and Staff Writer for "Sex in the City":
"This is indeed a story about the triumph of the human spirit. Yet, Erika tells it with an unflinching honesty and humor that makes you unable to put her book down. This is the real deal, not the sugar-coated version, and we, in the end, are left dreaming Erika's dreams with her."
Please join us in welcoming Erika Kirtoglou to the Book House on November 20th!
