The Best of Us with Joyce Maynard, Wed., Sept. 6, 8:45 am Join us bright and early on Wed., Sept. 6, at 8:45 am, as journalist and popular fiction writer Joyce Maynard discusses her new memoir The Best of Us (Bloomsbury, hb., 448 pp., $27). You can skip breakfast, because we’ll be bringing coffee and pastries to help pep everyone up. . In 2011, when she was in her late fifties, Joyce Maynard met the first true partner she had ever known. Then, just after their one-year wedding anniversary, her new husband was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. During the nineteen months that followed, as they battled his illness together, she discovered for the first time what it really meant to be a couple–to be a true partner and to have one. . Charting the course through their whirlwind romance, a marriage cut short by tragedy, and Joyce’s return to singleness on new terms, The Best of Us is a heart-wrenching, ultimately life-affirming reflection on coming to understand true love through the experience of great loss.
