She Writes Press
Jane Binns, Broken Whole
Sunday, December 2, 6 p.m.
4280 Tennyson Street
Colorado’s own Jane Binns, author and instructor at Arapahoe Community College, comes to BookBar to launch her new memoir, Broken Whole. The book is an unflinching portrayal of the dating life after divorce, from the perspective of a woman in her mid-thirties balancing changing family, a teaching career and the new wrinkle of romance. Unapologetic and observant, it’s the story of the often lonely road to finding love…again.
