Sarah Perry, After the Eclipse: A Mother's Murder, A Daughter's Search The Regulator welcomes Sarah Perry, author of the debut memoir After the Eclipse: A Mother’s Murder, A Daughter’s Search, for a reading and book signing. When Sarah Perry was 12, she saw a partial eclipse of the sun, an event she took as a sign of good fortune for her and her mother, Crystal. But that brief moment of darkness ultimately foreshadowed a much larger one: two days later, Crystal was murdered in their home in rural Maine, just a few feet from Sarah’s bedroom. The killer escaped unseen. Switching between heartwarming portrayals of her first years with her mother, and the devastation the murder wrought on her own life and those of the Bridgton community, After the Eclipse cuts deep into our society’s obsession with female violence and its portrayal in the public eye. Sarah Perry is a Davidson alumna who holds an M.F.A. in nonfiction from Columbia University, where she served as publisher of Columbia: A Journal of Literature and Art. She is the recipient of a Writers' Fellowship from the Edward F. Albee Foundation and a Javits Fellowship from the U.S. Department of Education. She lives in Brooklyn. Event date: 11/01/2017 - 7:00pm
