“Traveling the Two-Lane”

CoverSample23-2

There’s nothing quite like rush-hour traffic to make you question, “What am I doing with my life?” Local professor and speech language pathologist Marilyn Berman asked herself that question on the drive home one day, and it led to an 18-month road trip to make sense of her past and live more fully in the present. She details her reflections, particularly about growing up gay in an unaccepting society, in this memoir. Local publisher BookLogix will release this title on February 26, and you can order a copy at booklogix.com.
